Prayer and Liturgy

An important part of each day as a Catholic school is to gather, reflect and connect with God.

Our Prayer and Liturgy sessions are a valuable part of this process where children and staff have time to reflect on the weeks Gospel and find ways to implement what we have learnt and reflected upon throughout that week.


At St Raphael’s, we follow the Ten:Ten Relationship, Sex and Health Education scheme

The Life to the Full programme is based on the structure of ‘A Model Catholic RSE Curriculum’ by the Catholic Education Service. This model curriculum was highlighted as a work of good practice by the Department of Education so we therefore have confidence that the programme is fit for purpose in supporting the growth and development of your child.

It is our belief that we are made in the image and likeness of God and, consequently, gender and sexuality are God’s gift, reflecting His beauty and sharing in divine creativity. In order that children may grow and flourish healthily and holistically towards an understanding of their gender and its implications for successful relationships, they must be at ease with themselves and deepen their self-knowledge.
