We will soon be implementing a new area to the curriculum that focuses on Education for Personal Relationships. Whilst much of the content of this new curriculum is already addressed in school through RE and Science we are bringing in a Diocesan scheme, ‘A Journey in Love’ to support this learning.
Below is an outline of the scheme and the ethos behind the topic areas. There is also a powerpoint for you to look at that goes into a little more detail.
You are able to request that your child does not attend certain EPR sessions. However, I would urge you to contact school before you make any decisions in this area to discuss the content first. This scheme is supported by the Diocese and is aimed at children and appropriate for their year group.
We will be sharing more information with parents in the new year and will not be implementing any sessions until later in the new academic year. Staff will be looking at the curriculum and planning its delivery in the Autumn Term.
This information is given now to give you time to look at the content and ask questions of school before the start of the next academic year.
Please read the information and look at the website so that you are aware of the content of the curriculum and contact school with any questions.
