Parents are the first educators of their children. It is their right and responsibility to inform and educate their children in matters relating to human growth and development, particularly sexual development. Therefore, schools should always seek to work in partnership with parents and carers and the teaching offered by schools should complement and not replace their primary role. The Church has a special duty and right to educate as part of its mission, and a Catholic school is the principal means by which it assists parents in their duties.
Some parents and carers experience and express difficulty in discussing relationships and sex with their children. The school has a privileged role in collaborating with parents in their educative task and seeks to offer advice and to support them in this situation. This supportive role will be exercised with sensitivity.
