S48 RE Inspection

As a Catholic school the Section 48 Inspection reports on our quality of religious education and was conducted in March 2012.  Inspectors from the Diocese of Shrewsbury visited school and spoke to children, staff and observed lessons.

In a Catholic school, religious education should be accorded the same status and taught with the same rigour as the core subjects of the National Curriculum. 

As the new Religious Education Curriculum Directory (2012) stated:

“Religious education is central to the curriculum of the Catholic school and is at the heart of the philosophy of Catholic education”.  Furthermore, the Catholic school has a particular identity that is reflected in its life and worship.
