At St. Anselm’s our faith is an integral part of the life of the school. Religious Education is a core subject and embraces the whole curriculum. The school uses RE materials written by Dr Margaret Carswell.
Religious Education receives 10% of the Curriculum across the school as required by the Bishops' Conference. Religious Education informs all areas of the Curriculum including our School ethos and vision; "Success for all." The children are educated in their faith to bring them to a deeper understanding of what it means to be an active member of the Catholic community.
Daily collective worship, led by the pupils, enables the children to respond to God’s love. The school’s programme for worship and liturgy follows the Church’s Liturgical calendar. The School community celebrates Mass in the Parish Church each term including holy days of obligation and the School's Feast Day.
Our R.E. Leader is Mrs Eileen Dhak.
Our R.E. Governor is Sue Cawley.
Our RSE Governor is Mrs Gill Wickham.
The Daniel Twomey Award
How can I make this world a better place for all of God's children?
Daniel Twomey was a parishioner of St. Anselm's Church in Southall. He was a faithful servant of God and when he died, he wished that the children of St. Anselm's benefited from his legacy. It was decided that the best way to use his legacy was to award one child each year with the Daniel Twomey Award. This award will be given to one pupil each year in July. The award will be given for outstanding behaviour, which reflects the faith that Daniel shared. Children will need to demonstrate how they have made this world a better place for all of God's children.
Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) is taught using the new Catholic RSE programme ‘Life to the Full" in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
Caritas In Action
At St. Anselm's, we use the 'Caritas in Action' scheme of work. Catholic Social Teaching calls us all to work for the common good, help build a just society, uphold the dignity of human life and work for justice.
The 'Caritas in Action' programme covers learning outcomes for the Foundation Stage and Key Stages 1 and 2. Through a series of seven core themes, which are underpinned; by the social teachings of the Catholic Church.
The themes are building blocks and progress from EYFS to the end of Key Stage 2 (and beyond).

Prayer for Ukraine
As a school, our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the current situation in Ukraine.
We will continue to pray for all who are directly affected and for those who are dedicating their time in supporting the wellbeing through their compassionate acts.
Pound for Peace
On Friday 4th March the children created a carpet of flowers and invited all our families to take part in the "Pound for Peace". It was very moving to see the children create the flower carpet in front of the statue of Our Lady, Queen of Peace. Later that morning we gathered to pray for peace in the Ukraine and across the world. The children raised approximately £350 for the Ukraine Appeal. Thank you to all who supported this worthy cause.
