The Way, the Truth and the Life

Summer 2019

All primary schools within the Diocese use The Way, the Truth and the Life (WTL) programme as the main resource to support the teaching of religious education. This is supplemented by other resources and by regular professional development on creative and engaging approaches to the teaching of religious education. The WTL programme has its own website that can be found here.

The order of topics in KS2 has been altered to reflect changes to sacramental preparation in the Diocese – see the KS 2 outline. However, this is only advisory. School leaders and RE leaders who want to follow the usual WTL order of topics are able to do so. The WTL order of topics is also included below.
