RE Curriculum

Come and See


At St. Joseph’s School we use ‘Come and See’ religious programme of study as our RE scheme.

This material has been written by a group of experienced diocesan advisors.

It follows on from successful trialing in schools in England and Wales and is based on the theological foundations of the Second Vatican Council, the Catholic Catechism and the revised RE Curriculum Directory and includes the Catholic attainment levels.

It has been developed to respond to the children of the 21st Century in their journey of faith, giving children the children the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through scripture and tradition. It also makes clear links with the children’s own experiences to ensure that learning becomes meaningful for our children.


Our Religious Education curriculum influences all aspects of school life and is underpinned by the four strands of our Mission Statement in that we are a caring school; a learning school; a serving school and a celebrating school.

The religious programme, ‘Come and See’ is the core RE scheme at St Joseph’s.  Links are made with the children’s own experiences and the curriculum is adapted to make it real and meaningful to our children. We teach Religious Education through the process of Explore, Reveal, Respond.
