Religion Curriculum

 

Intent

Our fundamental aim at St Joseph’s is to assist pupils in their personal faith journey by providing an education for all our children in which the spirit of Christ permeates the whole life of the school.  As our mission statement suggests, “It is the role of the school to work actively in partnership with parents to foster the spiritual, educational, social and personal development of all our children”. Everything that the school teaches is centred on its Self-Evaluation Framework of the 5W’s, which are Word, Worship, Welcome, Welfare and Witness.
