St. Gregory's Catholic Primary School, Park Road, Smethwick

Our Parish


Our Parish Priest, Fr Edwin Cownley

St. Gregory's is a Catholic School and teaching is given in accordance with the doctrine of the Catholic Church.

We view religious education as a journey of faith formation involving every member of the school community, together with the pupil's family and parish community. The school has received a leading aspect award for this initiative.

This religious ethos is to be found across the whole curriculum and not just within the formal RE timetable. Religious Education is a proper subject in its own right in the school curriculum and as such is taught, developed and resourced with the same commitment as any other subject.

There is no provision to withdraw children from the formal RE provision within school.

Children regularly attend masses at St. Gregory’s Church. Classes routinely attend the Thursday weekday 10.00am mass.

Children lead liturgical worship and prayer services in whole school collective worship and individual classes.
