NPC survey – Review of the RSE Curriculum

The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) are currently reviewing the Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) curriculum for both primary and post primary schools in Ireland. As part of that review, NPC would like to hear the views of parents regarding their children’s RSE education in primary school so that NPC can make a submission to the NCCA, ensuring the views of parents right across Ireland are included on this issue.

 We have compiled a survey in order to gather parents’ views and would appreciate it if you could complete and circulate/share this survey to/with other parents of primary school children. The closing date for this survey is the 27th of January 2019. To complete this survey please click this link

Zeeko are committed to staying up to date with the latest trends in young people’s online behaviour. The children of 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class will complete a short online internet survey questionnaire in school over the next two weeks.  It is completely anonymous and there is no way for Zeeko to identify an individual student. The information Zeeko collects helps shape the content of presentations and informs us on the cyber issues that need to be addressed. The results of the survey will be included in the Parents’ talk presentation on Tues 2nd October 2018.
