It is recognised at St Gerard’s School that Religious Education is central to all we do. Faith is caught as well as taught and pupils are helped to develop an understanding of Catholic values and doctrines and they are encouraged to participate in the life of the Parish.


We follow the “Come and See” programme of Religious Education from F2 to Year 6. Click here to visit the 'Come and See' website.


The children are taught to value and respect other religious beliefs through in-depth study of other world faiths. We aim to teach children about loving human relationships developmentally alongside the Science curriculum, and within a framework of Religious Education.

Each year, during Advent, our older children visit the local nursing home and perform carols for the residents and staff. It is always greatly appreciated and the children love to see the big smiles they bring to people!
