What is Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE)

RSHE is a planned programme of study that supports and enhances the learning development of children and young people. Effective RSHE allows young people to make responsible and well formed decision about their lives. The objective of RSHE is to help and support young people through their physical, emotional and moral development. It will help young people learn to respect themselves and others, and move with confidence from childhood through adolescence.
At Corpus Christi RC Primary School, we want all children to successfully develop the qualities, skills and attributes they need to thrive as happy, well-rounded individuals, family members and members of society. 

 RSHE Programme of Study: Intent, Implementation and Impact

 Intent: What do we teach and why?
At Corpus Christi RC Primary School, we support the children's development in this area through the Ten:Ten 'Life to the Full Plus' Scheme of Work, which embraces and fulfils the statutory curriculum. The entire teaching underpinned with a Christian faith, understanding that our deepest identify is a child of God-created, chosen and loved by God. The name Ten:Ten come from the Scripture passage- 'I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.' John 10:10

The programme is taught with a spiral approach to learning in which pupils will revisit the same topics at an age-appropriate stage through their school life. It includes teaching about personal health, physical and emotional well-being, string emotions, private parts of the body, personal relationships, family structures, trusted adults, growing bodies, puberty, periods, life cycles, the danger of social media, where babies come from, an understanding of the Common Good and Living in the Wider World.

The Life to the Full Plus programme is based of 'A Model Catholic RSE Curriculum' by the Catholic Education Service (CES). This model was highlighted as a work of good practice by the Department of Education (DfE). It includes online parent portals so that parents and carers can engage with the teaching and deepen the experience of our children. To access the online parent portal please visit:

Programme Structure:

In Life to the Full, we follow a four-stage structure which is repeated and developed across four different learning stages:

● Early Years Foundation Stage is aimed at Preschool and Reception

● 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

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:

Within each Unit there are a number of planned sessions which are to be led in the classroom.

Implementation: How and when is it taught?
At Corpus Christi, we model positive relationships and communication skills with others in all our day-to-day interactions, as well as teaching skills explicitly in RSHE. We allocated 1 lesson of RSHE a week in order to teach the knowledge and skills in a developmental and age-appropriate way. The lessons are taught by the class teacher or another substantive member of staff.

Impact: How will we evaluate what skills and knowledge pupil have gained?
Children and staff will record work in their RSHE books or floor books (EYFS).
The will witness the impact of the programme mainly through the behaviours and attitudes of the pupils within school and in the wider world, and through their relationship with each other.
