'We Journey With Jesus Beside Us'

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
