St Bernadette Catholic Primary School

Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

Any teaching about love and sexual relationships in at St Bernadette's School will be rooted in the Catholic Church’s teaching about what it is to be truly human in Christ, what it means to live well in relationship with others and be presented within a positive framework of Christian virtue.

RSE stands for Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education.

It is our vision for Relationship and Sex Education in Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Westminster that pupils would learn how to foster healthy relationships and friendships in light of the wisdom of the Church.


Pupils will flourish when they truly understand their innate human dignity, love and appreciation of themselves, including respect for their bodies, and the way they were made by God. Please see the documents below for more information.
