Catholic Life

Pupils at St Bede's have a strong sense of belonging both within the school and the wider community. They understand the Catholic nature of the school and the Mission Statement and can discuss its meaning and relevance to their own lives.

Children take responsibility for leading liturgies for the younger children. At Advent and Lent we display the children’s contributions to these sessions. These sessions are a joy and are deeply rooted in their own faith journeys.

Children actively plan and lead liturgies within their classes. This is evident through the books particularly in Key Stage 2. Children also take part in the preparation for weekly Mass and have an active part e.g. readings, preparation of gifts, bidding prayers.

Children respect the religious areas of our school with a focus point in every classroom and one outside of the Head Teacher’s office. They also prepare liturgical areas of the class and prepare the areas for different liturgical themes. They respect the beauty and wonder of the new church next door and enjoy celebrating Mass with the parish.

Children’s behaviour is a testament to how they truly live out the school’s mission statement. They are able to relate to the teaching of Jesus with regard to forgiveness and reconciliation.
