Our Catholic Life in School

Year 3 and 4 Passion Play Easter 2024



The work of CRiBS supports the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development of children and young people as we seek to inspire Growing Faith and promote Living Values.

Our desire is that all children have the opportunity to explore and think through the values they live by and the beliefs that underpin them.

Our starting point is that the Christian story provides a compelling framework for doing this in a way that includes people of all backgrounds and provides space for growth and exploration.

We work closely with CRIBS through providing the opportunity for our girls and boys to get social and emotional support individually or in groups. CRIBS also perform a Christmas and Easter play for all the school and work with Year 6 preparing them for Secondary School.

Pupil Voice from pupils in Year 5 - some opinions about the school: 

Even if we’re all different, we still love everyone else

Everybody here is kind and friendly

The teachers are really nice

In class, we learn about praying and God’s story

Right now, we’re in Lent so we have all made a Lenten promise

In assemblies, you get Feel Good Friday so that you can celebrate the end of the week and look forward to next week

We have a Monday Message which we try to remember through the week and do it!

We learn about the Saints and how they became Saints like St Paul

We listen to stories from the Bible

We get to learn about God and you can learn about Lent and Pentecost and all the celebrations

We do more praying. This is good because you’re talking to God. We can read the Bible, we can go to Church. We pray in class.

We have lots of celebrations and Masses

We prepare for big celebrations like during Advent and Lent

We pray all together as a big family

We always learn the true meanings behind celebrations

Advent displays 2022 were telling the Christmas story through a selection of Christmas Carols. Our youngest children created their display based on their understanding of Christmas.
