Life to the Full
Relationships Health and Sex Education
In the academic year 2020/21, Relationships Education and Health Education will become statutory in all primary schools in England. This new subject will build on the non-statutory lessons we have previously taught in RHSE.
As a Catholic school, our mission is to support the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all of our pupils, rooted in the wisdom and teaching of the Church. The education of children in human sexuality is an important, precious and privileged responsibility. The Church teaches us that this is very much a partnership with parents, in which parents are the ‘first educators’ of their children on these matters; ultimately, you confer on us the right to co-educate your children with you.
We will be delivering our Relationships Health and Sex Education Curriculum through Ten Ten's programme in Relationship Education for Catholic primary schools, Life to the Full. Ten Ten Resources are used widely across many Catholic schools in England and The Catholic Education Service have approved Ten Ten curriculum content and standard of resources to ensure schools undertake their statutory duty.
Ten Ten have based the structure of Life to the Full on ‘A Model Catholic RHSE Curriculum’ by the Catholic Education Service, which was highlighted as a work of good practice by the Department of Education. Therefore, Life to the Full has a good foundation for a programme that will be fit for purpose over the coming years.
