At Our Lady of Compassion, we teach Religious Education (RE) through the programme 'Come and See'. RE is an integral part of our daily school life and fulfils all legal requirements. Please see our RE Policy for more information and for our aims and objectives. Our RE termly newsletters keep you informed of the themes we study each term and these also include suggested activities for home, as well as any important information about RE.

Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)
Our Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) programme is called 'A Journey in Love'. The programme has been approved by the Liverpool Archdiocese Schools team and has been introduced across all schools. All pupils will follow five themes from Nursery to Year 6; Physical, Social, Emotional, Intellectual and Spiritual. The content runs alongside our Come and See, Science and PSHE topics throughout the year. Please look at our RSE policy for more information. As parents, you have the right to withdraw your child from this aspect of the curriculum, however, this is not to be confused with curriculum Science, which is statutory. If you feel there is anything you would like the discuss, please ask to speak to the class teacher.
Each year will learn about the following:
Reception – God loves each of us in our uniqueness
Year 1 – We meet God’s love in our family
Year 2 – We meet God’s love in the community
Year 3 – How we live in love
Year 4 – God loves us in our differences
Year 5 – God loves me in my changing and development
Year 6 – The wonder of God’s love in creating new life
Collective Worship takes place every day in school. This can be in key stages, whole school, classes or small groups. Collective Worship gives everyone the opportunity to participate in daily prayer. Senior leaders, class teachers, and pupils plan Collective Worship sessions. Collective Worship consists of four elements; Gather, Listen, Respond and Go Forth. Please see our RE termly newsletters for the themes for each term.
