Our School Motto Is: Jesus is At The Heart Of All We Do
At St Peter’s, we place Religious Education at the heart of the curriculum, in order to help us to fulfil our mission to educate the whole child, academically, personally and spiritually.
We regard Religious Education as more than a curriculum subject, it is something that guides every area of our school. Ten percent of our curriculum time at St Peter ’s is given to the teaching of Curriculum RE. The Religious Education within the school promotes awe, wonder, reverence and spirituality within every child. As children are taught about God’s love, they discover their Christian responsibilities and how they should pray and care for others through the Church’s moral and social teaching.
At St Peter’s we have developed our own RE curriculum. As well as our virtues, we use several other schemes of work and resources e.g.”The "Way the Truth and the Life" “Come and See:” “Ten Ten” in addition to, resources produced by Cafod and Caritas Care.
We are working with Lancaster Diocese, as we begin to implement the programme of study and model curriculum, as set out in the New Religious Education Directory. This current academic year, 2023-2024, we are delivering it within EYFS, Year 1 and Year 3 and are excited about working with our Local Catholic Cluster to further develop our understanding, resources and implementation.

At St Peter’s School, we have a rich liturgical life in that the experiences we provide are wide ranging and take place in school, out of school, in Church and the wider community, and engage and involve pupils, parents, staff, governors and the parish.
Religious Education is further enhanced through our close relationship with the parishes of St Peter’s and St Joseph’s where, our children experience the liturgical life of the church by attendance and active participation in the Mass and the sacraments through the observance of religious services and festivals. Family Masses are held monthly in both our school parishes and we are privileged to share a weekly Class Mass in school, which we encourage parents, carers and family members to attend.
HRSE (Human Relationships and Sex education) falls within the general framework of Religious Education within the school, and in accordance with the moral and dogmatic teaching of the church. We use Life To The Full resources to teach HRSE and parent and carers are informed of any special programmes in sex education.
