As a Catholic primary school and Nursery, we teach religious Education through the 'Come and See' programme with support and guidance from the Liverpool Archdiocese Christian Education Dept. RE is taught through a range of topics, each focusing on one of three themes: Christian Living, Church and Sacraments.
There are 3 stages in the process for delivering the topics in 'Come and See' - Explore, Reveal and Respond which enable pupils to develop knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes.
The needs of individual pupils are met through a range of teaching and learning styles and experiences.
'Come and See' also requires us to teach the children about other faiths and religions; these include Judaism, Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
At Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Primary and Nursery School, we provide our pupils with an Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum that gives them the building bricks for their education and embeds the knowledge and the skills they will require to be ready for school and develop a love of learning. Our curriculum provides children with first hand experiences and practical opportunities to explore, find out more, develop their natural curiosity and become highly engaged in their learning. The curriculum supports children to use their imagination and creativity to develop their thinking through finding their own ways to solve problems and individual approaches to activities.
Children learn through our inviting, safe, calm and stimulating learning environment where they have opportunities to learn through play by initiating their own ideas with the continuous provision indoors and outdoors and through adult support, scaffolding and modelling. We support all pupils through developing strong relationships with them and equipping them with the skills they need to interact with their peers and adults.
Our curriculum is driven by raising aspiration for all, celebrating diversity, improving vocabulary and promoting health and well-being.
Our school values provide a basis for developing key personal skills necessary for a successful learning journey now and in the future - self-belief, independence, kindness, responsibility, respect and resilience.
