World Religions - A comprehensive site for older children.

BBC Religion - An introduction to Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism.


Children are taught about Christianity and other World Religions.

In Religious Education children will:

  • learn about the beliefs, values, practices and traditions of the Roman Catholic religion.

  • develop knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other world religion who also worship one God.
  • recognise religion as an important expression of human experience

  • explore and establish values such as wisdom, justice, compassion and integrity and establish values in their moral development

  • investigate and understand the responses which religions can offer to questions about the nature and meaning of life

  • develop the skills of reflection, discernment, critical thinking and deciding how to act when making moral decisions

  • develop respect for others and their beliefs, and an understanding of practices which are different from our own

  • develop their beliefs, attitudes, moral values and practices through reflection, discovery and critical evaluation, and make a positive difference to the world by putting their beliefs and values into action

  • establish a firm foundation for further learning and, for some, careers.

Our School Chaplain, Father Wojciech Rybka , supports and guides us on all these matters.  Our interactions with other schools in our town underpin the importance of respecting the traditions of others. Father Wojciech Rybka provides us with guidance and conducts mass on Holy Days of Obligation and special occasions. 

PLEASE NOTE - The Scottish Government has issued regulatory advice which makes clear that Religiousl Education should be taught.  We actively promote inclusion in all aspects of our Catholic ethos.
