RE

Religious Education

Our faith is at the heart of all we learn and achieve. It is a vital thread through our whole school mission, ethos and curriculum intent. Our RE curriculum builds upon our Catholic Life and is shared by the Diocese. Our school is part of an alliance of schools that gather with the Diocese to ensure our collective RE curriculum is purposeful and supports our learners. The curriculum we follow is The Way, The Truth and The Life which can be found on class pages within planning or by visiting the Leeds Diocese website here:

Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)

“Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.” DfE Statutory Guidance on SRE and Health Education 2019

In school, we use a diocese approved RSE scheme of learning, A Journey in Love. This is taught in all classes during the final half term of the year.

Each class has five units that covers every aspect of growth; physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual. These are then tailored to meet the needs and ages of the learners.

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