The Relationship and Sexuality Education programme is taught to pupils in all classes, beginning in January each year. A letter to parents goes home on the first week that the programme is being taught, outlining the content of the programme. The sixth class programme is covered as part of the Preparation for Life Day, which takes place in the 2nd term each year. Its exact date is notified to parents in advance each year.
The following are the home link pages at each class level around the themes of Growing and Changing and New Life which may be of use to parents to initiate discussion with their children during or after the programme.
