Mission Statement

 

 

Faithfully following in the footsteps of Jesus,

we serve, love and learn together

inspiring each other to excellence.

 

 

Religious Education Curriculum Statement

 

We follow the Religious Education programme recommended by the Archdiocese of Liverpool, 'Come and See'. It is engaging, inspiring and challenges our pupils' thinking.

 

The programme was developed to respond to the needs of children today in their faith journey, to enable them to grow in their religious literacy and understanding in a way that is coherent with current educational principles. It is designed to support teachers in their delivery of Religious Education. It integrates the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Standards of Attainment and the new Religious Education Directory.

 

At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God's self revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See gives pupils the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through Scripture and Tradition. Throughout a pupil's school journey, they will each have the opportunity to explore different faiths and religions as part of this curriculum.

For the Christian Community

Lord Jesus Christ,
you taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
Amen.

 

Our School Mission Day

 

On Thursday 16th September, we celebrated and reflected on our Mission Statement as a school community. This was a truly wonderful day and we enjoyed special times of worship, singing, dancing and creative activities. We thought carefully about how we try to follow in the footsteps of Jesus by serving, loving and learning together.

Please see Class Pages for photographs of this special day.

 

 

Each year Mission Together produce beautiful resources to help children journey through the season of Lent. We enjoyed sharing the Lenten liturgies and calendar reflections in school. Enjoy browsing through the slideshow of photographs which feature some of the  lovely activities pupils enjoyed from making  crosses for the Parishes of St Patrick's and St Maries, chalk drawings of Easter symbols on the playground in the sunshine and visiting church during Lent.

Fr John kindly gave each pupil and member of staff a prayer pebble on Ash Wednesday to display on our focus tables in class. We use them during times of Collective Worship and they will later be displayed in St Patrick's Reflection Garden outside Church.

 

 

Year 1 Trip to Church

The sun shone down on us for our lovely walk to church this morning. It was such a treat to take the children to meet with Father John. He sang with the children and chatted to them about our current Come and See topic 'Special People.' It was a pleasure to hear our own little special people talking to Father John and asking him questions.

Bishop Tom Williams visiting our school- 14th March 2019

We welcomed Bishop Tom Williams to our school on Thursday 14th March. We celebrated St Patrick's Mass together in Church and enjoyed asking him lots of questions about his role as a bishop.

 

Thank you Father for such a wonderful morning.

Pupils in Years 3 and 4 presented 'The Young Messiah', a Christmas reflection in St Patrick's Church on Monday 17th and 18th December.
Each class has produced a display featuring the 'Family' theme. Pupils enjoy exploring, sharing Scripture and responding through role play and written activities that are engaging and provide challenge.

Learning about and embracing other religions

 

Prity Mistry, a practising Hindu visited our school in May to talk to us about her faith. We enjoyed learning about Hindu Festivals and worship, exploring Holy scriptures and writing in sanskrit. Pupils had the opportunity to dress up in traditional clothes, have a henna design on the palm of their hand and learn dances and games.

 

Enjoy looking at the photo gallery of some of the wonderful moments we shared with Prity this week.
