Our Lady of Peace Catholic Primary and Nursery School follow the Come and See programme which has been recommended by the Diocese of Northampton as our scheme of work.
The Come and See programme was developed to respond to the needs of children today in their faith journey, to enable them to grow in their religious literacy and understanding in a way that is coherent with current educational principles.
At the heart of the programme is the mystery of God’s self-revelation of love through Jesus Christ. Come and See gives pupils the opportunity to explore the mystery of faith through Scripture and Tradition.
Come and See is an invitation to exploration and promise of life for everyone. Come and See offers the opportunity to search, to explore, to discover and to respond; this is part of what it is to be human.
Come and See aims to raise questions and provide materials for children to reflect on their own experience. For all children, the programme will raise questions of meaning and purpose and enable children to think critically, providing materials for reflecting on their own experience.
The programme helps children to explore the beliefs and values and the way of life of the Catholic traditions, and of other faith traditions, developing good attitudes and dispositions so that children are instilled with a ‘love and joy of learning’ and a desire to go on learning in their journey of faith.
During the year we raise awareness with the children for those around us in need of help and support. In line with our Catholic Social Teaching, we fundraise during the year to support local, national and international charities.
Charities we have supported are:
