Religious Education

Blessed Dominic Catholic Primary School is a Voluntary Aided School and our primary role is to serve the Catholic community of St Margaret Clitherow and other neighbouring parishes.

Our school life is based on Christian Values. We recognise and respond to the needs of each child academically but also in their growth as an individual. We develop happy, fulfilled, well-educated and confident children in a caring, disciplined environment with our Faith as the focus of our actions. We expect and encourage excellence in all aspects of school life.

Education  is a partnership between home, school and parish in which we seek and encourage the participation of parents in the learning process and in the life of the school. Parents are welcome partners in the education of their child and in the development of our school family. Parents are expected to uphold and reinforce those fundamentals of the Catholic Faith, which will be taught in school.  The school looks to a partnership with the parents in the development of the Faith and religious commitment of their child.  To this end, parents are expected to encourage by their own example of religious practice and on occasion to join with the teachers and governors in liturgies, assemblies or activities that might help them to foster the love of God and response to the Gospel in the children.
