Religious Education

The Way, The Truth and The Life



At St Hugh’s, we aim to create an environment where children are taught by example to grow as happy, flexible, responsible, independent, creative and adaptable people, showing tolerance among themselves and towards others.


As a Catholic school, we seek to develop an ethos whereby the spiritual, moral, social and cultural needs of all within the school community are supported.




RE at St Hugh's is not confined to a specific timetabled lesson, but is encompassed within all of our teaching. Here, the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of each child is addressed through all aspects of the curriculum as well as through the various day-to-day situations and opportunities that arise.


Formal RE is delivered through the scheme The Way the Truth and the Life, which is followed according to the Shrewsbury Diocesan guidelines.


The Way the Truth and the Life scheme is implemented from Early years through to year 6. Each year is split into 6 topics, one per half term and is organised to coincide with major events in the liturgical year. Each year group studies a different topic.
