Relationships and Sex Education forms part of the Health Education and Science Curriculum in school and is rooted in our Catholic Faith.
RSE is taught throughout the school using the Ten Ten scheme of learning “Live Life to the Full ”. Ten Ten’s programme for Catholic primary schools, Life to the Full, teaches Relationships Education and Health Education within the context of a Christian understanding of human sexuality rooted in the wisdom and teaching of the Catholic Church.
Given that RHE (Relationships and Health Education) is now a statutory subject for all schools, at Sacred Heart, we are embracing “the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life” by giving our pupils knowledge “that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships” (DFE Statutory Guidance).
We will deliver this teaching through the prism of Catholic RSHE.
The framework of our programme is taken from the Model Catholic RSE Programme by the Catholic Education Service, which has been highlighted by the Department of Education as a work of good practice.
