Religious Education

At St Bernard's, all staff and governors are aware that the school's foundations are built on the Catholic faith and beliefs, and that it is our shared responsibility to transmit the Catholic faith to the children in our care. All staff receive regular in-service training as part of their continuous professional development. Staff pray and work together to support each other in providing the very best Religious Education possible for the pupils.

Learning in RE is at the core of the curriculum and we ensure that the Bishop's directive is followed in allocating 10% of curriculum time to RE lessons. St Bernard's follow The Way, The Truth and The Life. The Governing Body provide outstanding support and commitment to the central place of RE in the school.

We hold the belief that we share the role of educators of the faith with the parents and carers of our pupils, and we strive to keep them fully informed of what their child is learning at school and to support them in what they can do at home to further their child's understanding of the faith.

Prayer, liturgy and worship are central to the daily life of our school. We provide opportunities for children's spiritual growth and development through participation in a variety of forms of worship and through experiencing all forms of prayer: formal, informal, spontaneous, private, shared, petitionary and meditative.

Pupils are actively involved in planning and leading worship, both in class groups and whole school settings. Our Mini Vinnies support our Nursery children weekly during their times of prayer. Shared acts of worship take place in an atmosphere of reflection and stillness, where we encourage each other to listen to God speaking to us and to respond.
