Primary Religious Education in Portsmouth Diocese

Religious education in Catholic schools aims to promote:

Knowledge and understanding of Catholic faith and life;

Knowledge and understanding of the response of faith to the ultimate questions about human life, its origin and purpose;

The skills required to engage in examination of and reflection upon religious belief and practice.

In the Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth, religious education is primarily taught through the God Matters scheme.
