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 Sex and Relationship 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 Sex Education at anytime if you wish to do so.

We strive to ensure that children leave St. Richard's Catholic Primary School, prepared, not only in the knowledge of their faith, but as young citizens of the world - ready to serve and bring Christ to others. We aim for our pupils to be clearly recognisable as pupils of St. Richard's Catholic Primary school, not only because of the deep knowledge and love they have of their faith but also because of their understanding of how to live it - serving those around them with dignity and humility and a genuine, active care for the world in which they live.
Our Prayer Ambassadors are beginning their training to become Mini-Vinnies in order to learn to serve their community better. Find out more using the link below..
