It holds that God has a special plan for every single one of us, whoever we are. Our part in this plan isn’t just limited to things ‘spiritual’, or times when we do ‘religious things’. It involves every aspect of our lives, from the things we pray about, to how we live as a responsible global citizen.
Our part in this story is a kind-of vocation for the common good, a call to treat everyone as our brothers and sisters. It is something that we all share.
The Catholic Church has seven principles of social teaching that we share with our children through all that we do, through the curriculum, special events and activity and through our ordinary actions in school.
There are 7 principles of Catholic Social Teaching, we are called to uphold them.
Catholic Social Teaching is used in many subjects, such as: History, Geography and English. It is not taught just in RE. Many of our assemblies feature Catholic Social Teaching, as we discuss world events and how our faith challenges us to respond in a particular way.
We teach our children to be thoughtful about and challenging of the world’s organisations and communities, we must work together to build a better world for the future.
