INTENT

 

Throughout St Stephen’s, we aim to present a comprehensive content which engages pupils and is the basis of knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith; to enable pupils continually to deepen their religious and theological understanding and be able to communicate this effectively.

 

We aim to present an authentic vision of the Church’s moral and social teaching so that pupils can make a critique of the underlying trends in contemporary culture and society and to raise pupils’ awareness of the faith and traditions of other religious communities in order to respect and understand them.

 

We continue to develop the critical faculties of pupils so that they can relate their Catholic faith to daily life; to stimulate pupils’ imagination and provoke a desire for personal meaning as revealed in the truth of the Catholic faith and to enable pupils to relate the knowledge gained through Religious Education to their understanding of other subjects in the curriculum whilst bringing clarity to the relationship between faith and life, and between faith and culture.
