Our Intent

At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we are required to teach Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) as part of our PSHE curriculum. Current regulations and guidance from the Department for Education (DfE) state that from September 2020, all schools must deliver RSE. High quality RSE teaching helps to create a safe school community in which our pupils can grow, learn and develop positive, healthy behaviours for life. We are involved in RSE 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 Catholic ideals. At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we teach our pupils about how to form relationships; including understanding loving relationships and acknowledging that children’s first experience of love is in the home. We encourage children from the earliest age to recognise that they are all children of God and that each person shares a God given dignity. As children mature, we encourage them to follow the example of Jesus and live lives inspired by the Gospel virtues.
