A Journey in Love: Volume 1 - Book

This programme has been revised to take account of the

latest DFE mandatory guidelines for September 2020. 

This revised resource for primary schools on Relationship and Sex Education is intended to support teachers and parents in Catholic schools to enable the holistic growth in love of children.

At the heart of this revised teacher’s resource is our belief that we are made in the image and likeness of God and, consequently, gender and sexuality are God’s gift, reflecting his beauty and sharing in divine creativity. In order that children may grow and flourish healthily and holistically towards an understanding of their gender and its implications for successful relationships, they must be at ease with themselves and deepen their self-knowledge.

An aspect of the mystery of love is treated in each year 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 that focus on social, emotional, physical and spiritual development.

The team of compilers with interdisciplinary skills drew upon their diverse and rich experience in education, medicine and pastoral theology.
