We are delighted to announce that our school is implementing the Relationship Education programme for Catholic primary schools, titled Life to the Full. You may hear your child coming home talking about this and we want to give you a brief overview of this new and ambitious programme.
As you may be aware, Relationship Education becomes statutory for all primary schools from September 2020. The Life to the Full programme is based 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. Therefore, we have confidence that the programme will be fit for purpose in supporting the growth and development of your child.
Life to the Full is much more than a series of lessons. It is an entire platform of creative resources that will engage, inform and inspire our children and, indeed, you as parents. This includes interactive video content, story-based activities, employing a wide range of teaching tools, original worship music and an accompanying programme of classroom prayers.
April 2021 update - Many thanks to all the parents and carers who completed our online survey sharing your views and giving feedback. We are always keen to hear you thoughts so if you would like any further information about any aspect of the programme, please do not hesitate to get in touch via phone or email.
Key Stage 1
Year 1 and 2 have been learning about 'keeping safe'. They have talked about how they can be safe in their lives and also discussed secrets. They talked about how some secrets are good secrets, but that some are bad secrets and that we need to share these with someone we trust.
Lower Key Stage 2
Year 3 and 4 have been exploring good and bad aspects of relationships.
They identified things people say and do, which might make them feel bad and discussed how this affected them.
Upper Key Stage 2
Year 5 have been exploring bodily autonomy and consent in their current RSE sessions.
