Relationships and Sex Education statement


The governors at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Catholic Primary School have adopted the ‘A Journey in Love’ programme as recommended by Liverpool Archdiocese.

‘A Journey in Love’ is a Relationships and Sex Education developmental programme for children in primary schools. This programme highlights the many aspects of human relationships and focuses on the physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development of each individual. It is grounded in the belief that we are all made in the image and likeness of God and supports the Catholic teachings of our school.

At Our Lady’s we will work closely with our parents/carers to ensure all children are cared and nurtured for within the teachings of this programme. Parents will be informed annually prior to its programme beginning and there will be an opportunity to discuss any concerns or questions with the school. You as a parent/carer, will have the right to withdraw your child from this aspect of the curriculum, but will need to discuss this with the Headteacher. However, this is not to be confused with the national curriculum Science programme which is statutory part of the curriculum. If you require any further clarification regarding this programme, please contact Mrs McGuffie ( Headteacher) at school.
