At St Joseph's Roman Catholic Primary School we follow a programme of study called 'Come and See.' It is based on the theological foundations of the Second Vatican Council, the Catholic Catechism and the revised RE Curriculum Directory and it includes the Catholic attainment levels. 

The Catechism of the Catholic Church addresses the search for meaning in life. God's initiative in revelation who comes to meet us and our response of faith (cf. CCC26.) The pattern guides the structure of the programme and informs the process of each topic, opened up through; Explore, Reveal and Respond. Children are also taught about other faiths. 

Information about each area of study will be sent home as part of the curriculum overview at the start of each term. 




We were inspected on March 22nd 2016 by the Diocese of Salford (Section 48 inspection.) The school was judged to be an "Outstanding Catholic Primary School." You can read the full report below or the office can provide you with a paper copy.
