RSE (Relationship And Sex Education)

Relationship education

RSE Implementation

We believe that as parents you are the first educators of your children, and in doing so have primary responsibility in teaching your children how to build healthy, loving relationships. Our catholic school however also plays a vital part in supporting you in doing this.

We have adopted the 'Journey in Love' programme to support Relationships and Sex Education throughout the school (Reception to Year 6). A Journey In Love is authentic to the teachings of the Catholic Church.


A Journey in Love


An overview of what is taught in each year group:

Reception: The wonder of being special and unique

Year 1: We meet God’s love in our family

Year 2: We meet God’s love in the community

Year 3: How we live in love

Year 4: God loves us in our differences

Year 5: God loves me in my changing and development

Year 6: The wonder of God’s love in creating new life

The teaching of RSE follows three main themes: 

- Created and loved by God

- Created to love others 

-Created to be part of a community

Many of these objectives have cross curricular links to Science, PSHE and RE (The Way the Truth and the Life)


Supplementary Materials

OIP (3)

Upper KS2 also use Body and Soul as a teaching resource. This provides excellent practical and written activities to support the teaching and understanding of relationships. 

RSE Intent

At St Augustine's Catholic Primary School, our belief in the unique dignity of the human person as made in the image and likeness of God, underpins the approach to all education in our school. Our approach to relationship and sex education therefore is rooted in the Catholic Church's teaching of the human person and is presented positively and prudently. 

At the heart of the Christian life is the Trinity, Father, Son and Spirit in communion, united in loving relationship and embracing all people and all creation. 



The purpose of monitoring and evaluating is to raise the overall quality of teaching and levels of pupil attainment. RSE is monitored by the subject leader throughout the year. This is to monitor and evaluate the teaching of the subject in order to ensure that pupil outcomes are high. The monitoring will include learning walks, lesson observations, scrutiny of pupils' written and oral outcomes, staff discussions and pupil voice feedback. Staff meetings will be used to share good practice and provide practical support.

Important Information.

Year 6 Parent Workshop

A workshop was held for Year 6 parents to inform the parents/carers of the content the children would be learning about in the unit- Physical- Explain how human life is conceived. 

It was a lovely opportunity to share the materials that Year 6 would be using with their parents and to answer any questions/concerns that they may have had. The presentation is below.
