Come and See

At St. Mary’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.
