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.)

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