RE at English Martyrs

A Partnership

We encourage our parents to support all of our children in their journey of faith. Our parish Church of St Joseph's is an extension of our school and all families are welcome to worship God in this Church. The meaning of life as understood in the Catholic faith is explored and experienced by all those taking part in the life of the school whether they are Baptised Catholics or not, practising their faith in their own Parish or not.

Religious Education

In the life of faith of English Martyrs CVA, Religious Education plays a central and vital part, it is the foundation of the entire educational process. RE is a core subject in our school which occupies ten percent of our timetable and the majority of classroom teaching is delivered through the Diocesan 'Come and See' Programme. A termly newsletter is sent home with more information about what is covered within lessons across each key stage.


Examples of Catholic Life in Our School




On our RE day at the beginning of the 2016 Autumn Term each class contributed to our RE Board displays in the Main Hall - you will see St Patrick, St David, St Andrew and St George (with his dragon!)


The children have also made Spiritual Promises for this acaemic year...'we may all be different fish, but in this school we swim together'
