Primary Education

 

This section will allow both parents and teachers to access information regarding primary  schools within the Diocese of Motherwell.

 

Religious Education is an integral element of the curriculum in diocesan schools. In a primary school, the head teacher is the chief catechist and to assist assist in its management, each school has an R.E. coordinator.

 

This Is Our Faith, the syllabus for Catholic religious education in Scotland, governs the teaching of religious education in Scotland's Catholic schools.  This is the first religious education syllabus to be originated wholly in Scotland and designed to meet the needs of young people in Scotland.  It was published in November 2011 by the Scottish Catholic Education Service on behalf of the Catholic Bishops of Scotland; a Senior Phase version was published in October 2015.

This is Our Faith is designed to inform teachers' understanding of the nature of the Catholic school, the purpose of religious education, the role of the teacher, the 'Strands of Faith' under which is organised  the 'core learning' in faith which young people are expected to experience through their Broad General Education phase (P1 through to S3) and at theSenior Phase (S4 to S6).
