Come and See is currently our scheme of work, this will be reviewed in line with the new Catholic Religious Education Directory for September 2025. Come and See is an invitation to exploration and promise of life for everyone. It offers the opportunity to search, to explore, to discover, and to respond; this is part of what it is to be human.


Come and See aims to raise questions and provide materials for children to reflect on their own experience. For all children the programme raises questions of meaning and purpose and enables children to think critically, providing materials for reflecting on their own experience.

The programme of study helps children to explore the beliefs and values and the way of life of the Catholic traditions, and of other faith traditions, developing good attitudes and dispositions so that children are instilled with a 'love of learning' and a desire to go on learning.

Children are offered a sense of self-worth through experience of belonging to the caring community of English Martyrs. We celebrate being part of a school family and the distinctive Catholic nature of our school


Each term children study topics to develop their understanding of the following themes:

  • Church
  • Sacrament
  • Christian Living.

Each topic lasts for four weeks and follows this sequence:

  • Explore: pupil are introduced to the topic through their own experience.
  • Reveal: The children learn about the Catholic faith through Scripture and celebrating God's word.
  • Respond: Pupils reflect on and celebrate their learning which ends with a prayer and liturgy.


As part of our Come and See programme, we have 'Faith Weeks' where the children will learn about other faiths, traditions, beliefs and special buildings. We teach children about the Hindu, Jewish, Sikh and Muslim faiths. We teach respect, tolerance and acceptance. We should follow Jesus' example to love our neighbours and treat others how we wish to be treated. 


We promote our pupils' learning of other faiths through class visits, guest speakers and through our involvement in the wider community.
