At Saint Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we endeavour to provide a high-quality Relationship and Health, RHE curriculum in accordance with the Catholic Church’s teaching. All learning about love and relationships in Saint Joseph’s is rooted in what it is to be truly human in Christ, what it means to live well in relationships with others. The learning is presented within the positive framework of Christian virtue, with a keen focus on the importance of healthy relationships to all human well-beings. It will emphasize the centrality of virtue in guiding human living and loving whilst recognizing the contemporary context we are living in today. In partnership with parents and carers, it will teach our children about the importance of marriage and family life, stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care. It will address the physical and psychological changes that accompany puberty and how love plays an essential and sacred role in procreation, whilst ensuring that the children are not exposed in school to erroneous information. The curriculum will be intrinsically woven into the spiritual, emotional, moral, social and intellectual development of all pupils, underpinned by our belief that we are made in the image and likeness of God.
