St Mary Magdalene Catholic Primary School

Religious Education Directory

The Catholic school is a community of faith, and religious education is where that faith seeks understanding, where pupils learn to love God with all their minds, where they learn to ‘know their creed so well that they can give an account of it’. In an atmosphere of faith, religious education is the engine room of the missionary dynamic of the Catholic school as a whole.

Prayer and Liturgy Directory

Just as Our Lord Jesus Christ is at the heart of all our prayer and liturgy, so too He is at the centre of every Catholic school. His Gospel is the reference point for its ethos and values; He offers the definitive example of the educator. Joining Christ in praise of the Eternal Father and united by the Holy Spirit in making intercession for the world through prayer and liturgy lies at the heart of the daily life of the school. The quality of the prayer and liturgy in school not only gives honour to God but forms the spiritual and ethical life of pupils and staff alike.
