RSE Policy

Why is RSE important?

’RSE is part of the mission of Catholic schools to educate the whole person. It should be carried out as part of the holistic education which seeks to form, as well as inform, young people in preparation for adult life.’  (Catholic Education Service).

From September 2020, the Government has made Relationship and Health Education statutory for all primary schools. To fulfil this statutory requirement, we follow the programme by Ten:Ten, called Life to the Full.  Ten:Ten Resources are widely used across many Catholic schools in England, and The Catholic Education Service have approved the 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 RSE Curriculum’ by the Catholic Education Service, which was highlighted as a work of good practice by the Department of Education. It has also been recommended by the Bishop of Shrewsbury, and ensures that RSE is taught within the context of a Christian understanding of human sexuality rooted in the wisdom and teaching of the Catholic Church.

Life to the Full is intended to be partnership between home, school and church. We hope that our new programme, Life to the Full, will further develop, support and enrich the partnership between home, school and church so that your child is fully supported in their journey.


What is Life to the Full?

It’s a programme in Relationships and Health Education based on the Department of Education guidance which became statutory during the academic year 2020/21.  This programme is rooted in a Christian understanding of the human person, based on ‘A Model Catholic RSE Curriculum’ provided by the Catholic Education Service.  This programme has been adopted by Governors following a period of consultation.
