Religious Education

As a Catholic School, Religious Education is provided within the timetable according to the syllabus authorised by Leeds Diocese, “The Way, the Truth and the Life”. St. Joseph’s is a Catholic school and as such a Catholic ethos pervades all that takes place within our school community. It is a parent’s legal right to withdraw pupils from RE lessons or collective worship but by so doing would negate the reason for choosing a Catholic school. Parents who wish to exercise this right should see the Headteacher, who will make arrangements accordingly. On certain occasions during the year Mass is celebrated in school whilst on other occasions as a school we visit St. Joseph’s Church. Other religious services and special assemblies are considered an integral part of school life and important in the spiritual development of the child.

Exploring Other Faiths

As part of our Religious Education the children have the opportunity to find out about other faiths. As part of this they visit other places of worship and we have visitors of other faiths in school to present assemblies. 

Sikh Temple Visit

The children in Years 2 and 3 visited a Sikh Temple, where they learned about the Sikh faith.

Mosque visit

Children in Reception and Year 1 visited a Mosque in Nelson to find out more about the Islamic faith.
