Christ The King RC Primary School

There is an overwhelming sense of belonging, one parent commented, “We are just one big happy family here”. (Salford Diocese, Section 48 Inspection)

Religion

Religious education is at the core of everything that happens at Christ the King and is visible in every room in the school. (Salford Diocese, Section 48 Inspection )

 

 

 

Christ the King is a Roman Catholic Primary School, which aims to provide a high quality Catholic education for all children who attend the school. It is committed to working in partnership with the Diocese of Salford, the parents of its children and the local community. The Mission Statement of Christ the King is central to the ethos of the school.

 

The G.I.F.T Team

We are the G.I.F.T team. G.I.F.T. stands for Growing in Faith Together.  We help to nurture the faith life of our school.  We lead assemblies and other times of collective worship.  We have a responsibility to ensure our faith is seen, heard and observed throughout our school and parish. We have been visting local schools in the Diocese of Salford to celebrate the Year of the Word.

We follow the ‘5Ws Framework’ in accordance with the Diocese of  Salford. The 5Ws stand for:

  1. WELCOME
  2. WITNESS
  3. WORD
  4. WORSHIP
  5. WELFARE

 

As a school, the RE Curriculum is based on the Liturgical Calendar and also the schemes of work recommended by the Diocese of Salford which include: Come and See and The Way, The Truth and the Life. The Come and See scheme is developed through 3 themes: Church, Sacrament and Christian Living.

 

 

Collective Worship

At our school we come together regularly to pray during Collective Worship.  We are lucky enough to be able to go to our Church too where our families can join us.

 

 

The Liturgical Year

Throughout the year, our school celebrates and follows the Liturgical Calendar.  We celebrate at Church, in school and at home.  We are privileged to be able to include our parishioners, families and the community of Christ the King at these celebrations. 

Sacramental Programme

Year 3 is a very special time for the children at our school.  We continue on our Sacramental Journey and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.  Everyone, including parents, parishioners,Fr. Derek, staff and children work extremely hard to make this a very special time at Christ the King.

Prayer Stations

At Christ the King, we take the opportunity to express our faith through prayer as often as possible.  We share our Prayer Stations Days with parents and parishioners.  All are welcome at Christ the King.

Wednesday Word

We are very lucky to have such dedicated parishioners who join us each week to share the Gospel with us. 

 

The Crowning of Our Lady

During May, as a parish and a school, we come together to honor Our Blessed Lady..  Traditionally, Year 3 children have led this celebration but everyone has enjoyed the May procession around school.

The Legion of Mary

We are very lucky to have the Legion of Mary visit us every week to say the Rosary.  Thank you Laura for your commitment and dedication; our children do enjoy this time for prayer.

Holy Hour and the Children of Fatima

At Christ the King children are given the opportunity to take part in the celebration of the lives of the children of Fatima and say the Rosary together.  Thank you to Mrs Farand, one of our Governors, for introducing this to our school. 

Other Faiths

We look at other people's faiths and beliefs and Christ the King.  Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Synagogue. We received a wonderful welcome and the talk and tour was both informative and fascinating.

Prayer Garden

We are very lucky to have a prayer garden at school.  We are able to come together here for collective worship.  We also use this space for our Remembrance Service in November and Mr Rice kindly places our beautiful Nativity figures here.

CAFOD

At Christ the King we work closely with CAFOD to ensure 'no-one beyond reach'. We've been lucky enough to engage in workshops centred around Pope Francis' encyclical, Laudate Si which encourages us to look after God's wonderful world.

You can find out more about CAFOD's wonderful work here.

Reaching Out To Our Parishioners

At Christ the King we are always supported by our parish and we thought we would reach out to them at this uncertain time.  We felt many people in our parish community might like to receive a letter from us and we do hope that they reply. We know that some letters are already winging their way back to us!
