Religious Education Curriculum
St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School embraces British Values of:
- Rule of Law
- Individual Liberty
- Mutual Respect.
We understand that Britain is a vibrant, multi-faith, multi-cultural society and this is reflected in our community here at St Mary's. The children in our school come from a wide variety of socio-economic, ethnic and religious backgrounds, but the school has the same high expectations for every child irrespective of their ethnicity, culture or religious beliefs.
We believe that the promotion of British Values is consistent with our Christian Gospel Values—Christ compels us to treat all those we meet with love, compassion and respect.
The school actively promotes a sense of our shared British cultural identity—the following are just a few examples:
- Celebrate and mark St George’s Day
- Mark Armistice Day each November with collective worship and timed silence
- Celebrate and mark important events in the life of the nation and the monarchy—The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee
- Promote the activities of the elected School Council.
