Relationships and Health Education (RHE)


The Department for Education (DfE) has provided statutory guidance for changes to RHE education for all pupils.  As such, we have chosen to trial a new scheme of work by Ten:Ten Resources.  Ten:Ten have worked with the Catholic Education Service (CES) and the DfE to create a scheme called Life to the Full. 


"Life to the Full is a fully resourced Scheme of Work in Relationships and Health Education (RHE) for Catholic primary schools which embraces and fulfils the new statutory curriculum. Taught with a spiral approach to learning, in which pupils will revisit the same topics at an age-appropriate stage through their school life, the programme includes teaching about personal health, physical and emotional wellbeing, strong emotions, private parts of the body, personal relationships, family structures, trusted adults, growing bodies, puberty, periods, life cycles, the dangers of social media, where babies come from, an understanding of the Common Good and living in the wider world. The entire teaching is underpinned with a religious understanding that our deepest identity is as a child of God - created chosen and loved by God. The programme is fully inclusive of all pupils and their families."


Programme Structure


In Life to the Full, we will be following a three-stage structure which is repeated across three different learning stages:


  • Key Stage One is aimed at Years 1 and 2*
  • Lower Key Stage Two is aimed at Years 3 and 4
  • Upper Key Stage Two is aimed at Years 5 and 6

*EYFS to follow in the future


Within each learning stage, there are three modules which are based on the Model Catholic RSE Curriculum:


  • Created and Loved by God
  • Created to Love Others
  • Created to Live in Community


Each Module is then broken down into Units of Work.
