Relationships & Sexuality Education (RSE)

Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) encourages children and young people to reflect on the relationships in their lives and to learn how to develop relationships which are based on mutual respect. This helps them to build a foundation for more intimate relationships in later life. RSE promotes a holistic understanding of sexuality and provides young people with information about their physical development and sexual health.

As part of the school’s SPHE curriculum RSE is taught to the pupils from Infants to 6th Class at an age-appropriate level in accordance with our RSE policy.

Our RSE Lessons will be delivered by Class Teachers in Term 3 each year. Lessons with sensitive content will be taught in the weeks immediately following the Easter break.
