RSE Information

RSHE or Relationship, Sex and Health Education is taught
throughout a pupil’s time at St Peter’s in-line with guidance
from our Diocese of Nottingham and the Department of
Education. Throughout the year, all classes will be following ‘A
Journey in Love’ to compliment what we already do in school.

On our policy page, or the link below you can find our full
policy, which clearly shows how each part of the expectations
of the curriculum is met through our Catholic Social Teaching
principles, PSHE, Come And See, and Science curriculum – of
course, as is everything we do at St Peter’s, this is taught with
the Gospel Values at the heart of it.

Parents of year 5 and 6 pupils are informed of when these
sessions will be, what they entail and have the right to withdraw
their children from them, although parts of it is mandatory in the
science curriculum.  A chance to view the materials is available
at the parents’ information workshop in the Pentecost
(Summer) Term.

If if you have any questions whatsoever, please don’t hesitate
to contact your class teacher through the normal means.

Journey in Love Programme

A Journey in Love is a resource created by Sister Jude Groden of BRES. It is the recommended programme of study for Catholic schools for Sex and Relationship Education, and has been written as a progressive scheme of work that supports the Religious Education, PSHE and Science curricula taught within the school.

Throughout A Journey in Love, an aspect of the mystery of love is focused upon in each group, children and young people are encouraged to marvel at the wonder and beauty of God’s creative love. This is reflected in each stage of a person’s growth in the Primary Years through a series of suggested, progressive and developmental tasks, activities and reflections which focus on physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development.

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.

A 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.
