Relationships and Sex Education

At St Joseph's we follow the Journey in Love programme of study for Relationships and Sex Education.  

As part of our RE, PHSE and Science curriculum we deliver a relationships and sex education programme, which is age appropriate to all our children. The programme has been approved and recommended by the Hallam Diocese. The programme is split into five different areas; Physical, Social, Emotional, Intellectual and Spiritual development.  Please find below a chart showing the main learning points covered in each section for each year group. The majority of the learning will be covered in our Science, RE, and PHSE lessons and will be recorded in part in the children's Journey in Love booklets.

We also work alongside Big Talk Education who visit the school to hold staff and parents information sessions and class based Big Talk discussions and information sharing.  For further information on the Big Talk, please click on the link or take a look at the two documents below 'Talking with children about body science and relationships : Tips for Parents and School Staff.  Education and Personal Relationships Programme of Study from Reception - Year 6.


Should you wish to see the Journey in Love booklets we use in school please speak to the class teacher.
