Christ The King Catholic Primary School Learning, growing and praying together with Christ Our King

Religious Education

Christ the King Mission Statement

Christ the King Catholic Primary School provides an excellent, Christ centred education through inspirational teaching and empowerment of all pupils to reach their full potential spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially and morally, in a happy, caring, stimulating environment promoting self-esteem and confidence.

At Christ the King Catholic Primary School we follow the Learning and Growing as People of God strategy which is provided by the Archdiocese of Birmingham.    Through the RE Curriculum and Sacramental preparation, the children in Year 3 prepare for their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion and Year 6 for their Confirmation.  This enables to children to have a deeper understanding and appreciation of their faith. The children are very well supported by the Father Tom and the Deacons at Christ the King.


The children participate in weekly Mass on a rota basis and Year 6 read regularly at 9.00am Mass on Sundays.  We have a good number of children who serve on the altar and sing in the choir.  We have a wonderful Carol Service during the last week of the Autumn Term and the children attend weekly Benediction during Advent.  We have found that this has a most positive impact on our children, staff and parents.  During Lent, the children attend weekly Stations of the Cross led by Year 6, parents and grandparents also support this very well.


During the Year of Mercy, all the children in KS2 travelled to Saint Mary's and walked through their Door of Mercy.  The children were exhilarated by this experience and said our own Three o'clock Prayer with great reverence every Friday. 


We have an Advent and Lent Club held on both sites which are very well attended by the children.  This gives them a little more insight into these Liturgical Seasons.


We have an established Chaplaincy Team here at Christ the King who work with other children in different year groups both in our school and at Saint Elizabeth's.
