Our Lady Immaculate Catholic Primary School

Faith Education for All

The outcome of excellent religious education is religiously literate and consciously engaged young people who have the knowledge, understanding, and skills – appropriate to their age and capacity – to reflect spiritually, and think ethically and theologically, and who recognise the demands of religious commitment in everyday life.

Catholic schools have a unique opportunity to promote interfaith dialogue and understanding while maintaining their Catholic identity and principles. Here at our Lady Immaculate, we aim to effectively engage with and respect the diverse religious backgrounds of pupils and staff by creating an inclusive environment

We ensure that all pupils and staff feel respected and valued, regardless of their religious background. This is reflected in the school's policies, practices, and the respectful language used by everyone in the school community. We are aware of and are sensitive to the various religious practices and needs of students, such as dietary restrictions, dress codes, and prayer requirements.

Within our curriculum, we include education about various world religions. Pupils are taught about the beliefs, practices, and significant festivals of the different religions - especially those reflected in our school cohort, such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Orthodox Christianity.

We strive to ensure the high quality of learning about other World Religions by inviting members of different faith communities to speak about their beliefs and practices. This provides students with firsthand insight and fosters a greater understanding and respect for other religions.

By integrating these strategies, Catholic schools can create a rich, inclusive environment that honours and respects religious diversity while staying true to their Catholic identity. This approach not only enriches the educational experience but also prepares students to live in a multicultural and multi-faith world.
