As part of the school’s SPHE curriculum Relationship & Sexuality Education is taught to the pupils from Infants to 6th Class at age appropriate level in accordance with Scoil Thomais RSE policy. The policy outlines why RSE is taught in school as well as clarifying the specific content and appropriate language to be taught at each class level. The full text of the RSE policy is available on the school website under About Us/Policies. 

During the week 11th – 15th January 2021 pupils from Senior Infants to 6th Class will be taught a specific Relationships and Sexuality (RSE) lesson as part of the Social Personal and Health Education (SPHE) curriculum. This lesson was on the curriculum for 2019/20 to be taught in May 2020 but due to the Covid-19 school closure, this lesson could not be taught to the pupils by teacher.  The planned RSE lesson will now be taught in January 2021 to all relevant pupils by their class teacher.
