St Joseph's is a Catholic school and we are committed to the Catholic Faith, recognising and valuing every individual as special and unique in the image and likeness of God. It is our duty to see our mission and vision embedded across the RE curriculum, and the wider curriculum beyond. This sits alongside the Gospel Values which are inextricably linked through everything we teach. 

RE at St Joseph's respects and promotes each child’s capacity for wonder, awe, reverence and spirituality. Our RE curriculum leads our children to aspire not to have more, but to be more; children are taught about God’s love and learn about their Christian responsibilities. Children are provided with experiences of church, Catholic and Christian traditions, as well as being taught to be respectful and understanding of people and traditions from other faith backgrounds. Through RE, our children learn about their unique place within the home, school and parish community.



We follow The Way, the Truth and The Life scheme of work for as the basis for our RE teaching. It begins in Reception and goes through to Year 6 and we cover 6 topics across the year.

We have daily Collective Worship either in class or as a whole school and a celebration assembly on Friday.  We use TenTen resources to plan our Act of Worship, along with Missio and CAFOD resources. 

Prayer is a very important part of each day and is central to our life in school. The children enjoy writing and sharing prayers and we hope you can support them to pray at home.

We have regular whole school Masses and visit St Joseph's Catholic Church to celebrate monthly Family Mass, weekly Mass during Lent and Advent, as well as termly Mass and celebration of feast days.
