Parent Information – RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education)
In the academic year 2020/21, Relationships, Sex and Health Education became statutory in all primary schools in England.
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.
The school has adopted the Life to the Full scheme by Ten Ten Resources. Ten Ten is an award-winning Catholic educational organisation that is well-respected and very experienced in this field of work. Life to the Full has been approved by our diocese.
Through their programme, Ten Ten understand the foundational role that parents have in educating and nurturing their children on these matters. Within the programme, they have built in resources which will not only keep you informed about what is being taught in school, but will also give you the opportunity to engage your children in discussion, activity and prayer.
Ten Ten have provided an Online Parent Portal which will be a tool we can use throughout the year to keep you informed and updated about the work we are doing in school.
RSHE lessons will be delivered during a week every half term.
