At St. Malachy's, we follow follow the Diocesan approved scheme 'The Way, the Truth and the Life' for our RE Curriculum. 

'The Way, the Truth and the Life,' begins at Foundation Stage and continues through to Year 6. Through this scheme we hope that our pupils will achieve four simple objectives:

• To know and understand the scripture text
• To put it into practice in school and at home
• To reflect on how you behave
• To observe how others behave

Within each topic the children draw on their own experiences to make links between religious stories and beliefs. In addition, they are able to give reasons for their good behaviour and that of others around them.
