Religious Education

At St. Edward’s, Religious Education is taught according to the rites and teaching of the Catholic Church. The Religious Education programme that the school uses is called 'The Way, The Truth and The Life' and is approved by the Bishops Conference.  While Religious Education has a particular and valued place in the timetable, it also underpins and is reflected in all areas of the curriculum and school life. Other world faiths are also studied as part of the programme each year.

The worship which takes place reflects the life and worship of the Catholic Church. Prayer is threaded through the school day. We aim to develop the spirituality and prayer life of each child. Our children learn traditional prayers and are encouraged to pray in their own words. They have the opportunity to prepare for and share in our school assemblies.

The spiritual life of the school is further developed in a range of liturgies within our School/Parish community. This includes class / year masses, liturgies, whole school masses, penitential and celebration services and times for reflection.
