Catholic Life

At St Modwen's, we are committed to providing our students with a rich and vibrant Catholic life.  Our school community is dedicated to fostering a strong sense of faith, guided by the teachings of Jesus Christ. Through our curriculum and faith-based learning embedded in school life, we help our students to deepen their understanding of their faith, and to develop their spiritual lives. Throughout the school year, we celebrate various religious festivals and special events, which give our students the opportunity to reflect on their beliefs and to come together as a community of faith.  Additionally, our daily prayers provide a time for reflection and an opportunity to give thanks and ask for guidance. We are proud to be a Catholic school, and we strive to ensure that all students feel welcome and supported in our faith-based community.


Living, Sharing, Experiencing and Celebrating our Catholic Faith

At St Modwen’s, our faith is central to everything we do.  We show this in many ways.  There are regular assemblies, masses and liturgies to which parents are always welcome.  

The curriculum we follow is based around ‘Learning and Growing as the People of God’ developed by the Archdiocese of Birmingham.

Celebrating the sacraments is a vital part of nurturing the children’s faith.  Year 3 prepare for First Holy Communion, while the Year 6 programme includes Confirmation.  We really appreciate the support of parents in Year 3 and Year 6, through prayers services, celebration and parents' meetings.  In this way the home, school and parish work very closely together in partnership.

We expect all children to participate in various RE activities, and we always aim to include all children wherever appropriate.  All children have opportunities to lead and participate in prayers, readings and singing whatever their religion.  We embrace the culture and heritage of all children and follow a planned programme of work to raise multi-cultural awareness.

The importance of prayer is evident throughout school.  The children are encouraged to learn set prayers for the beginning and end of the school day, together with grace before and after meals and traditional prayers of the Catholic Church.  Parental support in promoting prayer is very much appreciated. 

We celebrate Mass in school most Thursdays at 9:15am.
