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 and this Summer, 2019 we are trialling the new "Ten:Ten" RSE programme, "Life to the Full."
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 Fr. Gerard Mitchell SJ
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 Catholic 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. The winner will be have their name recorded on a special plaque and a gift voucher will given to the child.
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.
