Relationship and sex education

Relationships and sex education (RSE) is a statutory part of the curriculum. We teach RSE through a variety of subjects, principally through RE, PSHE and Science. It can be a sensitive subject, and we rely on working in partnership with parents and carers to ensure that students acquire the relevant knowledge and understanding as they grow in their maturity and that the content delivered is developmentally appropriate. RSE covers the physical aspects of reproduction, social issues and sexual health.

It also is responsive to issues which affect our students and are currently in the media.

Our teaching reflects the teachings of the Catholic Church: our values and beliefs influence our approach to RSE, where it is set within a moral framework and within the guidelines prescribed by the Church.

“Provision for the students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding and makes the college a pleasant and harmonious place to be.” Ofsted
