Word and Worship

These are interpreted by the children as Talk and Pray.

Word [talk] – talk together as a word of God’s community.

Worship [pray] – We pray together as a worship community.

Word & Worship

We learn about the word of God during our Religious Education (RE) lessons and during Prayer and Worship sessions. We do this through the study of scripture and developing pupils understanding of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. At St Patrick’s our approach is very creative, we use drama, art and music to learn about the Catholic faith and develop our relationship with God. We also place a strong emphasis on developing socially, morally and emotionally. We reflect on what we have learnt and consider what this means to us in our daily lives and how we behave as a result of our beliefs – this is called Learning from Religion.

The Catholic Faith at St Patrick’s permeates every aspect of school life. We have excellent relationships with our families and across the wider community. The Gospel values and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural) development at the core of our curriculum, vision and mission statement.
