6.3 ST ROBERT’S PRIMARY SCHOOL RELIGIOUS EDUCATION POLICY


Rationale:
Religious Education is fundamental to all aspects of learning and development at St Robert’s and therefore permeates all Key Learning Areas.
The Staff, our Priests, parents and children form a Community of faith and work together to bring this community a love of Jesus and a desire to live life in his way.


We believe that we do this by:
• Being a welcoming community
• Caring for each other
• Respecting each other’s differences
• Celebrating our faith together
• Recognising our strengths and weaknesses
• Valuing everyone
• Allowing our children to develop and learn to the best of their ability
• Building on children’s faith experience
• Supporting children and families as needed
• Reaching out to others in need, both locally and globally.


We will ensure that our planning, assessment and reporting to parents will be appropriate to the children’s needs and stages of development.
We will be available to discuss and share with parents, concepts covered during the course of the year.
As directed by our Archbishop we will use the ‘To Know, Worship and Love’ texts as our main teaching resource supported by the ‘Guidelines for Religious Education’.
