Dear familes of St Teresa's,
Working with the Lancaster Diocese and governors, a revised Human Relationships and Sex Education Policy (HRSE) has been produced. To allow school to adopt this new policy, it is necessary to consult with our familes to ensure that everyone is fully aware of it and agree with its implementation.
Please take some time to read its contents - see document below. Should you wish to receive more information or have any feedback, please contact the school office: firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for responses is Friday 23rd October.
Thank you for your support,
We are proud to be a Catholic School and Religious Education is central to the curriculum of our school.
Everything in school has the potential to speak of God’s loving care. Religious Education therefore is not just confined to the RE lesson or to the assembly, but is present in all our experiences at school. This presence is revealed by what we do, not simply by what we say.
The themes explored in the RE lesson reflect this attitude, and are a basis for work in other curricular areas. Our Religious Education programme is based on a RE scheme of work approved by Lancaster Diocese: ‘The Way the Truth and the Life’.
During the liturgical year there are many opportunities for children, staff, parents and parishioners, to come together to pray and reflect, through school assemblies, Masses and other celebrations. These are important opportunities to celebrate and re-emphasise the Christian values we seek to promote.
It is the responsibility of every Catholic school to provide for all its members a vital experience of liturgy, worship and prayer which:
The purpose of these experiences is:
Collective Worship in our school will be:
in order to ensure that the Collective Worship experienced within the school is a relevant, meaningful and positive contribution to the religious, spiritual and moral development of all members of the community.
" St Teresa pray for us.
Help us to be what Jesus
wants us to be and to do
what he wants us to do.
Lord Jesus, we love you."
