At St Gregory's, we believe that Religious Education is central to the curriculum of our Catholic school and that it is at the heart of the philosophy of our Catholic education. Within the RE department we teach about the Catholic faith, its origins, development and place in the 21st Century. We also teach a range of other world religions, social issues and Relationships within the context of Gospel values. Each individual student is invited to grow in faith and come to a greater understanding of what it means to be human. Our curriculum is guided by the Curriculum Directory which is produced by the Bishops Conference of England and Wales. We work closely with other Primary and Secondary schools both within and outside of our Diocese.


Religious Education at St Gregory’s is based on the Religious Education Directory published by the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales in 2023. The RE curriculum fosters an appreciation of Catholic beliefs, values and ethical perspectives which are countercultural and challenge us to consider our morals and values in the diverse society in which we live.


Our role is to help our students understand their purpose in making the world a better place. Our students have a holistic education guided from the core of core subjects: Religious Education. There is a desire for our students to be ambassadors in our local community and society. We will equip them with the tools to do this. We want pioneers of social justice, those who act to support the poor and disadvantaged. We would like our students to make the community we live in a vibrant, healthy, positive, environmentally friendly place. Our students must take pride in who they are, where they are and why working to support the local community is important.


Working collaboratively with our Diocese, Parish community and other faith traditions, we provide a range of activities which reinforces learning and demonstrates the importance of Religious Education in society today. The Religious Education department uphold the values of Catholic education, so students can work to make the world a better place guided by the example of Christ as the perfect teacher.


Students are challenged to think independently, arriving at their own conclusions and gain a deeper knowledge of who they are as individuals. Students are encouraged to become religiously literate and develop an appreciation of the faith and non-faith perspectives in our world today.


Within lessons, students are encouraged to develop their knowledge, understanding and evaluative response to the Catholic faith, Christian traditions and other world religions. Students are assessed through end of unit tests and assessed tasks. This informs teachers of progress and areas for development.

Our Values

Ambition Rooted firmly in Catholic teachings, we aim to nurture and guide our students to fulfil their God-given potential so they may achieve success.

Leadership We strive to be a community of servant leaders, where individuals gain a clear sense of self and purpose, knowing their values and using these to guide how they enrich the community in which they belong.

Integrity We teach our students to value honesty and have strong moral principles, using their discernment to govern their actions and take responsibility for their choices.

Vigour Inspired by the life of St Gregory, we empower our students to work with vigour, so they approach all activities and opportunities with effort, energy and enthusiasm.

Empathy We aim for our students to understand and value the feelings of others and for them to know they are loved and celebrated irrespective of their differences.
