The Way, The Truth and The Life
At Our Lady of Victories' Catholic Primary School we follow The Way the Truth and the Life RE scheme. This Programme of Study covers the teachings and the practices of the Catholic Church and how these impact the lives of people today.
At OLV we enrich this scheme through a Creative Curriculum approach, using a variety of activities and resources to bring to life the teachings of Jesus.
Other faiths are addressed as a consequence of, and in the context of, Catholic teaching. Catholic teaching about the action of God in the world requires an informed and respectful approach to other faith. Catholics can learn from the practices of other faiths (e.g. patterns of prayer, fasting, pilgrimages etc.).
The scheme incorporates attainment targets: learning about the Catholic faith (AT1) and learning from the Catholic faith (AT2). These are set out in the form of specific key learning objectives for each module.
