At St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that the teaching of Relationships & Sex Education is an important aspect of the National Curriculum that needs to be delivered to pupils sensitively and at an age appropriate level.
Any teaching about love and sexual relationships at our school is deeply rooted in the Catholic Church’s teaching about what it means to be truly human in Christ, to live well in relationships with others and be presented within a positive framework of Christian virtues. As a result, we follow Ten Ten’s ‘Life to the Full’ scheme of work to teach high quality, Catholic centred RSE lessons.
Furthermore, we recognise the importance of working collaboratively alongside parents and carers in order to deliver this sensitive curriculum area. The school ensures that parents are informed of the content through annual workshops held during X term. Further information can be obtained from our school’s RSE policy and FAQ document produced by the Diocese of Westminster Education Service.
