We are involved in Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) precisely because of our Christian beliefs about God and about the human person. The belief in the unique dignity of the human person made in the image and likeness of God underpins the approach to all education in a Catholic school. Our approach to RSE therefore is rooted in the Catholic Church’s teaching of the human person and presented in a positive framework of Christian ideals.
Following the guidance of the Bishops of England and Wales and as advocated by the Department for Education (DfE), RSE will be firmly embedded in the PSHE framework as it is concerned with nurturing human wholeness and integral to the physical, spiritual, emotional, moral, social and intellectual development ofpupils.
All RSE will be in accordance with the Church’s moral teaching. It will emphasise the central importance of marriage and the family whilst acknowledging that all pupils have a fundamental right to have their life respected whatever household they come from. It will also prepare pupils for life in modern Britain.
The school makes use of Ten Ten’s Life to the Full Relationships and Sex Education Programme which is recognised by the Diocese of Westminster as a suitable scheme. The scheme is underpinned and rooted in the teachings of the Church.
