Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) is taught throughout the year through Come and See and our PSHE curriculum, but also taught independently through 'Journey in Love.' It is taught from Reception to Year 6. Below you can find information about how Come and See links to RSHE, and also the specific learning which takes place through 'Journey in Love.'
Each week throughout their time in school, children are discovering more about themselves and the world around them. Our school is dedicated to creating a safe and stimulating environment that supports that development, and Journey in Love is an important part of that process.
At the heart of our work is our mission statement, which guides us in understanding ourselves as children of God, each special and unique. One important aspect of this is learning about our faith and how it shapes our lives. A Journey in Love is a curriculum scheme that is integrated into all levels of learning, focusing on friendship, family, community, relationships, as well as spirituality.
The content of 'A Journey in Love' is age appropriate and taught with sensitivity, taking into account the maturity level of the children. Naturally, children may have questions related to these lessons and we ensure that there are opportunities for them to ask these in a sensitive and age appropriate manner. The programme also places great emphasis on the importance of parental involvement so we encourage children to discuss their lessons at home.
We are proud of the progress our pupils are making and the values they are developing. Together with yourselves as parents/carers, we are creating an environment that fosters growth and supports your child's journey as they continue to learn and discover more about themselves and the world around them.
Parents/Carers are welcome to request samples of the resources we use for 'Journey in Love' should they wish to look in more detail at the content. If you do need any extra resources, please email school marked for the attention of the RSHE Lead.
'We are not some casual meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God.' Benedict XVI
