RSHE Parental Consultation and Parent Information

Given that RSHE is becoming a statutory subject for all schools, we are embracing “the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life” by giving pupils knowledge “that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships” (DFE Statutory Guidance).

As a Catholic Secondary School, we teach Ten Ten’s programme, Life to the Full which ‘teaches about Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) within the context of a Christian understanding of human sexuality rooted in the wisdom and teaching of the Catholic Church.  We 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’.

Life to the Full addresses the needs of young people and where they are at in today’s world. The teaching includes lessons on the following key areas (amongst many others): puberty, personal hygiene, fertility, menstruation, family and friends, sexual intimacy, an understanding of the body, sexuality, marriage, gender, online relationships, social media, consent, STIs, contraception and natural family planning, as well as the effect of drugs and alcohol on relationships and sexual exploitation.

All lessons and resources meet the new statutory requirements for RSHE and fulfil the Model Catholic RSE Curriculum by the Catholic Education Service. Some lessons may be taught by the RE Department but most sessions will be taught by Form Tutors or PSHE/ RSE Leads.
