Vita Et Pax Preparatory School

Religious Studies

Religious Education is taught across the school using the ‘Come and See’ programme. Through this, children learn the traditions, beliefs and practices of the Catholic faith. Through prayer and worship in school, we try to be a living community of people celebrating their love for God and one another.

Children are taught about the faiths of other groups in our community at key points across the year, in connection with a variety of religious festivals.

The outcome of excellent Religious Education is religiously literate and engaged young people who have the knowledge, understanding and skills to reflect spiritually, think ethically and theologically. We aim to provide children will the tools to apply their religious understanding to everyday life.

Our close connection with our local Parish, Christ the King, allows us to celebrate Mass together and build relationships with our wider community. We have visits from our Parish Priests to spend time with the children and share opportunities to ask questions about our faith.
