Relationships and sex education (R.S.E) in our school  Lots of updates to follow from Sept'17

 

The Governors at Our Lady and All Saints Catholic Primary School have adopted the 'All That I Am' programme to support the non-statutory relationships and sex education in Years Five and Six.

 As part of our commitment to you we will hold a meeting annually  for the parents and carers of children in Years Five and Six to discuss the programme. You have the right to withdraw your child from this aspect of the curriculum however, this is not to be confused with curriculum Science which is statutory. If you require any other clarification of this aspect of the curriculum please contact Mrs. Griffin.
