Come and See
The Religious Education Programme
To fulfil our aims and objectives, St. Richard's will follow the Come and See programme of Religious Education, recommended by the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton as our scheme of work.
Come and See is an invitation to exploration and promise of life for everyone. Come and See offers the opportunity to search, to explore, to discover, and to repond; this is part of what it is to be human.
Come and See aims to raise questions and provide materials for children to reflect on their own experience. For all children the programme will raise questions of meaning and purpose and enable children to think critically, providing materials for reflecting on their own experience.
It will help them to explore the beliefs and values and the way of life of the Catholic traditions, and of other faith traditions, developing good attitudes and dispositions so that children are instilled with a 'love of learning' and a desire to go on learning.
Children will be offered a sense of self-worth through experience of belonging to the caring community of St. Richard's.
