Religous Education at Divine Mercy R.C. Primary School is based on the Gospel values and teachings of the Catholic Church. We aim to develop a strong awareness of the spiritual dimensions of life amongst our pupils and to equip them with Christian and most importantly Catholic values which will guide them throughout their lives.

Every Wednesday, we hold Place 2 Pray for children from years 3-6, in our classrooms where we gain a deeper understanding of the Scriptures. It is such a happy and joyful atmosphere where the children can relax and be themselves whilst listening to the word of God and allowing the Holy Spirit to work powerfully in their lives. The children love attending this prayer club and contribute so much to it through the unique gifts and talents that they have. A variety of prayerful activities are on offer including Praise and Worship, Gospel reading with discussion and role play from the Wednesday Word.
Each class is timetabled to attend the Wednesday word sessions to enrich their lives with the Word of God
