Catholic schools, like all other schools in England, are required to produce a written policy following the guidance issued by the Department for Education on Relationships education, relationships and sex education and health education. (RHE) The DfE guidance can be found here. Catholic schools are also required to deliver RHE in accordance with the teaching of the Church. St Joseph's, using the model policy from the Diocese, have drafted the following policy. Working with parents, governors and staff, we are now in the consultation process and we welcome any feedback you have on this document.
In the Autumn Term, we will be holding Parent Workshops in order to share the resources that we are planning on using in school.
