RE fulfils the requirements of the Religious Education Curriculum Directory as published by the Bishops of England and Wales. The RE curriculum at St. Hubert’s follows the Diocesan approved scheme People of God, and doctrine is taught in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church. The School aims for the Christian growth of its children in their own faith and in their awareness of the world around them.
Respect for other faiths and cultures is part of our mission and the teaching of other cultures and religions is an important part of our programme within the context of the requirements of the Curriculum Directory. Pupils will be taught about the integrity of other faiths and not as comparative religion. Pupils will learn about the beliefs, expression and celebration, living and belonging, of the principal religions in Great Britain.
School Masses, class Masses, daily prayers and assemblies are central to our worship. The school works closely with the Parish priest and the parish to develop the spiritual life of pupils and their families. A monthly Parish/School Mass is held in the Parish usually on the second Sunday of each month. All families are invited to a preparation session in class and to attend the Mass.
Faith is one of the fundamental pillars of the Our Lady & St. Hubert's community. Everybody who attends OLSH is a member of our faith community and is therefore fully included in our Catholic Life, Religious Education and faith development.
As part of our faith journey, we also learn about lots of the other important culutres and faiths which make up our school, community and society. Therefore, we hold regular multi-cultural and multi-faith events and weeks where we explore in detail the aspects of faith and culture which help shape our world.
