The Catholic School of St Gregory The Great Believe and Achieve

Religious Ed Curriculum

In RE, we aim for all of our children to see themselves as children of God, an opportunity to deeper their understanding and own spirituality. We endeavour to inspire a sense of curiosity in our children and develop their enthusiasm for RE, recognising that the skills and knowledge they learn through RE can be used to have a positive impact on God’s world around them.



RE Statement of Implementation:
We follow the Clifton Diocese’s Framework set out by the Bishop.  We teach using the God Matters Scheme of Work, through these vehicles:

  • Prayer Life – Prayer underpins life at St Gregory’s. This can take many forms and is embedded into all that we do.
  • Working in Communion – Working in communion together with the whole St Gregory’s community helps to strengthen our mission. This includes the pupils, families, staff, parish 
  • Inclusion through teaching for mastery – ensures our children cover the same content through a mastery approach, enabling all children to achieve their true potential through careful support and scaffolding. 
  • Metacognitive and retrieval opportunities – enables our learner to embed knowledge to become ‘understanding’ and to apply methods of transferring knowledge from children’s working memory to their long term memory. 
  • Oracy and development of  vocabulary– are built across the curriculum to aid metacognition and teaching for mastery.  These also aid the development of AT3 skills (KS2).
  • Catholic Social Teaching – helping our children be givers rather than takers of society. 
  • Growth mind-set – helping the children be the very best they can be with high aspirations for themselves and others. This gives them a better awareness of how they learn, the emotions linked to this and the transferable learning skills needed to reach their potential. 
  • Restorative practice – helps our children to develop stronger relationships, and become problem solvers within these so that they are resilient to overcome adversity within their lives. 
  • Extracurricular opportunities – provides a wide range of additional experiences for the children to inspire them within their learning. This also enables us to seek out and develop the talents in every child. For example; trips, visitors to talk to the children, our Chaplaincy team and masses.
