Welcome to the Saint Patrick's RSE website page.
Journey In Love is the RSE scheme (Relationship and Sex Education) that we use at St Patrick's. It is the recommended programme of study for Catholic schools for Relationship and Sex Education, and has been written so that year on year the children build on their knowledge and awareness. It also supports the Religious Education, PSHE and Science curriculum taught within the school.
As with all aspects of learning, children are naturally curious and many will have questions related to their lessons. Opportunities to discuss questions form part of the lessons and again these are treated with care and understanding. Journey In Love highlights the importance of parental input and children will be told to discuss their lessons at home. As a parent, you have the right to withdraw your child from Sex Education at anytime if you wish to do so.
The governors at Saint Patrick’s Catholic Primary School have adopted the HH Kids programme to support the non-statutory RSE in years 5 and 6. The programme of study is authentic to the teaching of the Catholic Church.
As part of our commitment to you, we will hold a meeting annually for the parents and carers in Years 5 and 6 to discuss and outline the programme. You have the right to withdraw your child from this aspect of the curriculum however, this is not to be confused with curriculum Science which is statutory.
