Caritas in Action
At St Dunstan's, we use the ‘Caritas in Action’ scheme of work. Catholic social teaching calls us all to work for the common good, help build a just society, uphold the dignity of human life and work for justice.
Our teaching aims to educate our children not just in global issues of poverty but to gain a better understanding of social justice issues in our community and the UK.
The ‘Caritas in Action’ programme covers key learning outcomes for the Foundation Stage and Key Stages 1 and 2 through a series of seven core themes, which are underpinned by the social teachings of Catholic Church.
The themes are designed as building blocks and progress from the Early Years/Foundation stage through to the end of Key Stage 2 (and beyond).
Theme 1: The Dignity of the Human Person
Theme 2: Family and Community
Theme 3: Solidarity and the Common Good
Theme 4: Rights and Responsibilities
Theme 5: Option for the Poor and Vulnerable
Theme 6: The Dignity of Work
Theme 7: Stewardship
