St Mary's Catholic Primary School


Religious Education


Saint Mary’s Catholic Primary School is a caring Catholic community where every child is equal. We aim to nurture each child’s uniqueness in the spirit of God, helping them to achieve their full potential in a safe and happy environment.


In our Catholic school we provide a:

Safe, loving and enriching environment

Trust, and patience

Motivation to reach individual's full potential

Acceptance and celebration of uniqueness

Respect for all

Young people nurtured in the Spirit of God

School full of awe and wonder

At Saint Mary’s, our Catholic faith is central to all that we do: our work, our play and all our actions. Pupils are helped to develop an understanding of Catholic values and doctrines and they are encouraged to actively participate in the life of the parish.

Religious Education is taught through discrete lessons following the “Come and See” programme of religious education from Nursery to Year 6, as is advised by Hallam Diocese.  In addition, each term the children are taught to value and respect other religious beliefs through an in-depth study of one other world faith.
