Religious Education

St. Marie’s is a Roman Catholic School and religious education is provided in accordance with the rites, practices and observances of the Roman Catholic faith. It is expected that children admitted to the school will take a full and active part in the religious life of the school.

Parents have a right to withdraw their children from R.E. and Worship if they so wish. If this situation is to arise arrangements would be made with the parents to exercise this. Our school uses the Salford Diocesan Guidelines for Religious Education. Our celebrations include prayers in class, assemblies, year group Masses and whole school Masses in church.

We work closely with our parish church and parish priest. All aspects of education are a partnership and you have a duty to support your child a member of the Roman Catholic community. This support is needed when your child is preparing for the Sacraments of Confirmation, Reconciliation and Holy Communion.


Children are taught a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum. The curriculum is enhanced by a wide range of after school activities and other educational experiences, such as trips outside of school and visiting speakers.

The Early Years - Nursery and Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Years 1 to 6 follow the new National Curriculum 2014. At Key Stage 1 and 2 we follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) which uses a topic based approach. Please click on the tabs to see the curriculum covered for each year group.

Curriculum booklets are sent home each term to give parents this information. Also included are ideas and suggestions to support children with their homework and their work in school.
