RSHE or Relationship, Sex and Health Education is taught throughout a pupil’s time at Holy Cross in-line with guidance from our Diocese of Nottingham and the Department of Education. Throughout the year, all classes will be following ‘Life to the Full’ and “Kapow,” to compliment what we already do in school.

On our policy page, or the link below you can find our full policy, which clearly shows how each part of the expectations of the curriculum is met through our work with CAFOD, Catholic Social Teaching principles, PSHE, RSHE, Come And See and Science curriculum – of course, as is everything we do at Holy Cross, this is taught with the Gospel Values at the heart of it.

All of the members of staff who teach Relationships and Health Education have completed training. The RSHE co-ordinator, Mrs Monk, has attended additional Diocesan training facilitated by the NRCDES.

Parents of year 5 and 6 pupils are informed of when these sessions will be, what they entail and have the right to withdraw their children from Sex Education part but not the Relationship part. School is required to record the names of children who are withdrawn from the Sex Education part of the curriculum.
