'We Journey With Jesus Beside Us'

RE Curriculum

“We Journey with Jesus beside us.”


At St Dunstan’s, we weave the Gospel Values through everything we teach. RE lessons are faith-filled, enjoyable lessons where each child feels they belong to our school community and not excluded because they are not Catholic. Lessons are places where everyone is respected for their beliefs and expressions of faith.

Our Religious Education curriculum leads our children to aspire not to have more, but to be more; children are taught about God’s love; they learn about their Christian responsibilities; children are provided with experiences of church, Catholic and Christian traditions, as well as being taught to be respectful and understanding of people and traditions from other faith backgrounds.

Through Religious Education, our children learn about their unique place within the home, school and parish community.


St Dunstan's follows the "Come and See" RE Scheme.


The content of our RE curriculum is based on the Religious Education Curriculum Directory and guided by instructions from our Bishop John Arnold and the Primary Education Department at the Diocese of Salford.

The Gospels of Jesus Christ lies within the heart of our curriculum. At St. Dunstan’s we want to lay down the foundations for the children to become disciples so that they have a life-long journey of faith. Through the teaching of prayer and worship,

word and sacraments, faith and morality, we try to show the children what it means to be a Christian. We encourage the children to build their own relationship with God; to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ; to develop their own sense of social justice and to become stewards of God’s Earth.
