RSE or Relationship And Sex Education is taught throughout a pupil’s time at Holy Cross in-line with guidance from our Diocese of Nottingham and the Department of Education. From the Pentecost (Summer) Term all classes will be following ' 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 and Relationship and Sex Education Audit which clearly shows how each part of the expectations of the curriculum is met through our Statements to Live By, PSHE, Come And See and Science curriculum - of course, as is everything we do at Holy Cross, this is taught with Catholic Teaching at the heart of it.
During the Advent (Autumn) Term our overview for all year groups in school will be available on this page - we want to ensure that we get every aspect of God's love and RSE correct and delivered in age appropriate ways.
Pupils in Year 5 and 6 receive separately taught sessions by Miss Hornsby and Mrs Simpson. Both of these members of staff have undertaken training offered by the Diocese and are monitored by Mrs Bales ( whom has also attended training) and Father Paul.
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 can be arranged if requested.
If if you have any questions whatsoever, please don’t hesitate to contact Miss Hornsby through the normal means.
