As a Catholic school, Jesus Christ remains central to every aspect of school life all pupils are educated in the beliefs and devotional practices of the Catholic church. Participation in daily collective act of worship remains at the helm of every day, within RE lessons and at the end of each day. Every class prepares and leads Collective Worship.
The Catholic RE scheme ‘Come and See’ is followed throughout the school. This is supplemented by work stories from the Old and New Testaments and Personal, Social and Health Education. Children participate in special liturgies during the school year which are timed to coincide with events in the Church’s calendar.
Our parish priest, Father Elliot welcomes us all to church, please visit https://www.olmc.org.uk/ for more information.
All pupils learn about other religions and cultures and are encouraged to show respect and acknowledgement for the beliefs of others through open discussion and shared experiences. This is reflected through the involvement of pupils, both within school and the wider local community.
Throughout the months of October and May, a Rosary prayer group takes place.
During Lent and Advent, liturgies take place during the school day. These prayer group sessions are led by staff and pupils.
