God’s Loving Plan guides teachers in Catholic primary schools on how children can be helped to develop healthy and respectful attitudes to their bodies and to relationships with families and friends. This important resource connects children’s learning about who they are and how they relate to others, to their learning about God and their relationship in faith. It helps children to understand how love can be at the heart of their lives.
In using this resource, teachers are encouraged to work closely with parents and carers to ensure that young people are supported as they grow, particularly when coming to deal with the physical and emotional impact of puberty. Good communication between home and school is encouraged to ensure that the more intimate aspects of children’s growth are dealt with sensitively and skilfully by parents and teachers working together.
