What they are saying about "In The Beginning...."

  • Jon Murray (H/T) – St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School Dukinfield :
    Shrewsbury Diocese

    "I have used 'In the Beginning...' as a classteacher, RE Co-ordinator,
    a deputy headteacher,  and Headteacher in three different schools. I commend it for its gentle progression, its involvement of parents and carers and for its celebration of God's gift of new life."

  • Jayne Keegan-Hobbs (H/T) St. Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School, Wombourne : Birmingham Diocese

    "A fantastic resource. I have now brought it to 3 really inspired and supported my staff...parents love it- its a really gentle but effective way of delivering SRE across the school."

  • Jim Graves (H/T) St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Ramsbottom :

    Salford Diocese

    “A brilliant scheme that completely meets the needs of our children in the modern age, and has much valued support from our parents, governors, staff and parish.”

  • Siobhan Leonard (H/T) Rothwell St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Rothwell : Leeds Diocese

    "The programme 'In the beginning' has been running at  St Mary's for the last 9 years and has continually proved to be such a valuable resource for teaching SRE in a Catholic setting. Parents, Governors, staff and children enjoy the booklets. The programme allows for a superb partnership between home and school with the parents leaflets. An invaluable resource which is used every summer term. "

  • Damian Harrison (H/T) SS. Aidan & Oswald Catholic Primary School, Oldham : Salford Diocese

    "We have been using 'In the Beginning' for many years now. It gives us a comprehesive approach to EPR which supports and enhances our Mission as a Catholic school. The children and parents find the materials engaging and extremely valuable. It is a fantastic resource for teachers - a comprehensive and beautifully structured approach to a delicate part of the curriculum."

  • Clare Downing (D/H) St. Peter’s Catholic Primary School, Stockport :

    Shrewsbury Diocese

    'We have been using “In The Beginning….” for many years including 2 updates. It has been a resource which has offered support to both teachers and parents in the delivery of SRE. Its progression through KS1 and KS2 is seemless. I recommend this resource.'


  • Anna Marie Shanley  - Headteacher, St. Joseph's RC Primary School, Salford

    "This programme has been welcomed by staff and parents alike as it allows us to work together to teach our children the joy of meaningful, caring relationships and how these can develop into loving, Christ centred family units."
