Dear Parents,

In line with Department for Education requirements for all schools, St Cuthbert’s Roman Catholic Multi Academy Trust has been reviewing & updating the approach to Relationships Education in our Primary schools and Relationships and Sex Education at St Mary’s College. We have decided as part of our review to present a whole Trust policy, applicable to all children in our schools across the age range of Primary and Secondary.

A draft policy has now been developed and is published here for your information. A key element of Relationships/Relationships and Sex Education is that it is undertaken very much in partnership with Parents and carers.

If the approach outlined in the policy is acceptable to you then there is no need to do anything. However, you are welcome to express any views or comments you have before it is submitted for final approval. If you would like to share anything with us in this regard please e mail ( by Friday 8th May 2020.

It will not be possible to reply individually to each response but please know that we are grateful for contributions which help shape the policy before implementation in September 2020.
