"Learning and Growing Together in Faith and Friendship"

Relationships and Sex Education (SRE)

Relationships and Sex Education

As a school, we follow the RSE programme, 'A Journey in Love', written by Sister Jude Grode, as recommended by Birmingham Diocese Education Service. This programme is rooted in our Catholic faith and is progressive in its teaching of children's discovery of themselves and the wider world, from Nursery right through to Year 6. 'A Journey in Love' focuses on friendship, family, community, relationships and spirituality; providing a guide to children’s development as young Catholics. In addition to this, Year 6 children receive a visit from the school nurse to inform them about their changing bodies as they mature. Parents are informed prior to this visit and have the option to remove their child from part or all of this session if they so wish.
