RE and Catholic Life
St Charles’ is first and foremost a Catholic school.
We work to ‘Love, Learn, Grow Together’
Our Aims are:
- To love, respect and forgive as Jesus taught us
- To inspire, nurture and celebrate the unique talents of everyone
- To gather, share and value all in our community with an open heart
This is how we live our Catholic Life every day.
We teach our children using the ‘Come and See’ Religious Education curriculum. Parents receive termly newsletters, ‘Come and See At Home’, informing them of what pupils are taught, and how they can be supported at home.
We pray everyday, sharing Collective Worship and learning the prayers of the Catholic Church.
Our children support those less fortunate than they are by fund-raising for charities that they choose to support. In the last year those have included: Cafod, Nugent Care, the Red Cross appeal for the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire, Children in Need, as well as our link parish in Ghana.
We have close links with the parish of St Charles and St Thomas More, and our parish priest, Fr James Preston, is a regular visitor. He spends time in every class and sometimes stays and has lunch with the children.
