Advice & Information for Parents

RSE Parents Talk

Each year we invite the parents of our 5th and 6th class students to attend an information and discussion event where the content of our RSE lessons is presented and made available for parents/guardians to view and ask questions. This year, owing in part to technical problems on the day, we have made the slides available here for you to view and refer to when discussing RSE topics with your child at home. Please feel free to provide us with your thoughts and feedback with regard to the lessons and the home discussions. We are also available to speak to you should you have any questions or concerns in in relation to this aspect of your child’s development and education.
