RSHCE (Relationship, Sex, Health and Citizenship Education)
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 have been researching various programmes that are available and have decided to adopt Life to the Full 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. Furthermore, Ten Ten have entered into a partnership with the Catholic Education Service and the Department for Education to provide training for teachers in Catholic schools on the subject of the new statutory
curriculum. Therefore, we are confident that this programme is a very good fit for our school.
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.
