“Following the example of Jesus, together we learn, love and respect one another to be the best we can be,”
It is the mission of the school to bring this into being. Thus at St Michael & St John’s:
We encourage our children to achieve their true potential and to take full advantage of all opportunities offered to equip them for their spiritual and educational journey.
We believe that each child is a unique creation belonging to God and made in His image. We want out children to recognise this, as they develop their self-esteem and build relationships.
We support out children in appreciating their individual talents and in valuing the gifts given to others. We encourage the children to recognise that they are equally valued within school and the wider community.
At SSMJ we offer our children an exciting and faith filled RE curriculum that is central to every aspect of school life. Through the outstanding provision we make we ensure that children leave our school religiously literate and engaged in the world and people around them, filled with knowledge, understanding and skills so that they can reflect spiritually, think ethically and theologically, and who are aware of the demands of religious commitment in everyday life.
We use the schemes; The Way, The Truth and The Life and Come and See to deliver the RE curriculum.
Here are some websites we use in school to help us deliver RE both in class and through prayer and worship,
