As you maybe aware, from September 2020, Relationship and Sex Education becomes statutory in all Secondary Schools in England and Relationship Education becomes statutory in all Primary Schools in England. In light of this, we have become a DfE ‘early adopter’ school and we have been working hard to implement the necessary changes to our school curriculum. In order to do this successfully and in line with our Catholic faith, we have been using resources provided by Ten:Ten, a faith inspired programme that teaches Relationship and Sex Education within the context of a Christian understanding of human sexuality – rooted in the wisdom and teaching of the Catholic Church. The framework of the Ten:Ten programme is taken from the Model Catholic RSE Programme by the Catholic Education Service, which has been highlighted by the Department of Education as a work of good practice. Our RSE curriculum will be delivered through our SMVSC, RE and Science Curriculum.
On Thursday 13th February 2020, our SMVSC day will be based on our new RSE Curriculum.
In order for our RSE curriculum to be successful, and for parents/carers to have a good understanding of what is delivered in school, I would like you to read through the Relationship and Sex Education Policy (found on our school website under the RSE section) and provide any feedback that you may have, using the link below:
You will find in the Policy, and in the RSE section on the website, more information regarding Ten:Ten plus a KS2 parent login to access the resources for yourself. Due to not all the resources being ready for Key Stage 3, the parent login for KS3 resources will not be ready until September 2020 however, if you wish to see any of the resources that we are using during the SMVSC day on Thursday 13th February, you are more than welcome to contact school and arrange an appointment.
Thank you for your support.
Mrs K Gallinagh
