Religious Education



As guided by the Diocese of Portsmouth, St Patrick's follows the "God Matters" scheme to teach RE. This consists of 10 themes throughout the year, guided by the Church's calendar. The scheme also includes a multi-faith element to most topics.

There are:

  • Creation

  • Prayers, Saints and Feasts

  • Advent

  • Christmas

  • Revelation

  • Lent

  • Holy Week

  • Easter

  • Pentecost and Mission

  • Sacraments

Each topic explores Scripture, our response to its teachings and Church tradition.
