Come and See

Here at St Alban's we follow the Come and See programme of Religious Education as recommended by the Archdiocese of Liverpool. We follow it from our Foundation stage and across Keystage 1 and Keystage 2.

The Come and See programme is split into three themes which are gradually explored throughout all year groups. The themes are Church, Sacrament and Christion Living.

The process for delivering the topics in the Come and See programme has three stages... Explore, Reveal and Respond.


Explore... is the introduction to the topic where the children's life experience is explored. The questions it raises are wondered at, shared, investigated and their significance reflected upon. One week is given to this part of the programme.


Reveal... is the heart of the programme where knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith is revealed through the Word, in Scripture, Tradition, doctrine, prayers, rites and Christian Living. Two weeks are given to this part of the programme.


Respond... is where the learning is assimilated, celebrated and responded to in daily life. One week is given to this part of the programme.


At the end of each topic, a whole school Rejoice assembly takes place, led by children from every class throughout the year.

Every Friday, the children lead or Friday prayers at our Come and See assembly, where we also celebrate achievements. Children from every class will be involved throughout the year.


Other Faiths

As part of the Come and See programme, we also study two non christian faiths per year. We focus on Judaism in the Autumn term and Islam in the Summer term.
