To Know You More Clearly

This academic year, we are introducing the new Religious Education Directory Curriculum, 'To Know You More Clearly' in R and KS1.The programme will be introduced to all other year groups by September 2025 as directed by the Archdiocese of Liverpool. It will be introduced to classes over the following timescale:

  • Autumn 2023 Reception
  • Spring 2024 Year 1
  • Summer 2024 Year 2
  • School year 2024/25 KS2

All classes will follow the same topics, or 'Branches' as they are called in the programme, in an age appropiate manner: Details of the Branches will be added to class pages as they are rolled into the programme:


  • Creation and Covenant
  • Prophecy and Promise


  • From Galilee to Jerusalem
  • From Desert to Garden


  • To the Ends of the Earth
  • Dialogue and Encounter


Come and See

At St Julie, we follow the 'Come and See' scheme as recommended by Liverpool Archdiocese.  An annual overview of this is shown below.

Each term pupils will study topics which develop understanding of the following themes: Church, Sacrament and Christian Living.

Each topic lasts for 4 weeks and is taught in the sequence:

Explore: pupils are introduced to the topic through their own experiences

Reveal: Catholic faith is revealed through scripture, tradition, doctrine, prayers, rites and Christian Living.

Respond: Pupils reflect on, and celebrate their learning. This culminates in a short act of worship, prepared by pupils and shared with parents/guardians.


Other Faiths

It is important to us that our children see themselves as part of a wider community. To ensure we have real and lasting experiences, we have a wide range of Other Faith visitors and visits to places of worship so that children can develop an understanding of, and respect for, the major world religions.


Big Question

Pupils of all ages are encouraged to reflect on their work. As such, pupils are presented with ' Big Questions' to help them think more deeply about the topic they are studying. Please see below for an overview of the questions your children will be thinking about. Also, have a look at class blogs where children and parents can share their thoughts on these questions of life.
