Religious Education at SFDS
At St Francis de Sales,we pride ourselves on the quality of teaching and purposeful learning that ensures that the children in our care are engaged, interested and making the expected progress during Religious Education lessons.
Religious Education Curriculum Statement
We follow the Religious Education programme recommended by the Archdiocese of Liverpool, ‘Come and See’. It is engaging, inspiring and challenges our children’s thinking. The programme was developed to respond to the needs of children today in their faith journey, to enable them to grow in their religious literacy and understanding in a way that is coherent with current educational principles. It is designed to support teachers in their delivery of religious education. It integrates the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Catholic Levels Of Attainment and the new Religious Education Curriculum Directory. At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God’s self-revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See gives pupils the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through Scripture and Tradition. Throughout a pupil’s school journey, they will each have the opportunity to explore different faiths and religions as part of this curriculum.
Religious Education is at the centre of all we do here at our school It is, therefore, essential for use to ensure consistent high standards in this subject across the school. To achieve this, we have a clear and cohesive assessment system that is in line with other core subjects, such as Literacy, Reading and Maths.

A Journey in Love - Relationship and Sex Education
We believe that relationships and sex education (RSE) goes beyond the biological knowledge of sex and the importance of personal hygiene; it also has moral, legal, cultural and ethic dimensions. We want to help the pupils at our school make informed choices, to understand and deal with their emotions and experience healthy relationships within the ethos and principles of the Catholic Faith.
