Primary RE

Welcome to the Primary RE section of our website.  Primary schools within the Diocese use either Come and See or The Way, the Truth and the Life.

Come and See

The Way, The Truth and The Life

Both schemes are based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church and cover the requirements of the Religious Education Curriculum Directory.

Resources to support our primary schools in all aspects of Religious Education can be found here in the Resource Centre.

Section 48

Under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005 the Bishop has the right to inspect any Catholic school or college within his Diocese to evaluate the quality of Religious Education and the Catholic nature of the school. In the Diocese of Salford these inspections are carried out on a cyclical basis by trained inspectors, the majority of whom are current diocesan serving headteachers. The Framework which governs these inspections is the 5W’s Framework for Review, Evaluation and Celebration of our Catholic schools in the Diocese of Salford. The Framework describes and exemplifies the expectation of provision of Catholic education in our schools and colleges and provides schools with a lens through which they can review and reflect upon their educational community as an authentic and distinctive institution. The Framework enables schools to celebrate their heritage and tradition of excellence in Catholic education at the service of the Church’s mission to the world. Copies of this Framework are in every school in the Diocese and can be obtained from the Department for Education by contacting the office.
