Religious Education (RE)
As a Catholic school we believe that all learning is about God. As such, the teaching and learning of RE is at the very heart of our curriculum. While RE exists as a discrete subject area in its own right, the skills, concepts, attitudes and beliefs learned in the subject permeate every area of life at St. Laurence School. Our RE teaching follows the East Anglia Diocese RE Curriculum.
We recognise that young children have a natural aptitude for prayer. They are open to God and respond in joy, wonder, anger, disappointment and elation to the world around them. Collective worship is an integral part of school life and central to our Catholic ethos. The school holds a daily act of collective worship, enabling the children and staff to come together to re-focus our day with God at the centre. In Year 3, children are prepared for the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
