A Journey in Love Booklet for Parents.docx


A Journey In Love is a resource created by Sister Jude Groden of BRES. It is the recommended programme of study for Catholic schools for RSE Relationships and Sex Education, and has been written as a progressive scheme of work that supports the Religious Education, PSHE and Science curricula taught within the school.


Throughout A Journey In Love, an aspect of the mystery of love is focussed upon in each group. Children and young people are encouraged to marvel at the wonder and beauty of God's creative love. This is reflected in each stage of a person's growth in the Primary Years through a series of suggested, progressive and developmental tasks, activities and reflections which focus on physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development.


As with all aspects of learning, children are naturally curious and many will have questions related to their lessons. Opportunities to discuss questions form part of the lessons and again these are treated with care and understanding.  A Journey In Love highlights the importance of parental input and children will be told to discuss their lessons at home. As a parent, you have the right to withdraw your child from RSE at anytime if you wish to do so.


For information about A Journey in Love please read the 'Booklet for Parents'.  If you require further advice, please contact your child's class Teacher.
