At St. Anne’s children’s well-being, happiness and safety are our first priority. RHE/PSHE is an important, integral component of the whole curriculum; it is central to our approach and is underpinned by our vision and values and reflects our faith and our mission statement and is at the core of our ethos.

Our programme of study is ‘Life to the Full Plus’ published by Ten:Ten. Life to the Full Plus 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.

Within each learning stage (EYFS, Key Stage One, Lower Key Stage Two and Upper Key Stage Two) are three modules which are based on the Model Catholic RSHE Curriculum:

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


Each module is then broken down in to units of work as shown below.

Within the RHE curriculum, children will be able to recognise that there are different types of relationships (e.g. friendships, family relationships, online relationships). They learn that a feature of positive family life is caring relationships; about the different ways in which people care for one another. They are able to recognise and respect that there are different types of family structure (including single parents, step-parents, blended families, foster parents, LGBTQ+ families); that families of all types can give family members love, security and stability. They learn to recognise other shared characteristics of healthy family life, including commitment, care, spending time together; being there for each other in times of difficulty and how to recognise if family relationships are making them feel unhappy or unsafe, and how to seek help or advice (including domestic violence). They discuss the importance of friendships; strategies for building positive friendships; how positive friendships support wellbeing, what constitutes a positive healthy friendship (e.g. mutual respect, trust, truthfulness, loyalty, kindness, generosity, sharing interests and experiences, support with problems and difficulties); that the same principles apply to online friendships as to face-to-face relationships and to recognise what it means to ‘know someone online’ and how this differs from knowing someone face-to-face. They learn the importance of seeking support if feeling lonely or excluded.  They learn strategies for recognising and managing peer influence and a desire for peer approval in friendships, recognise the effect of online actions on others and how friendships can change over time.  They also learn how to manage disputes and reconcile differences positively and safely. They deepen their understanding of the impact of bullying, including offline and online and learn strategies to respond to hurtful behaviour experienced or witnessed, offline and online (including teasing, name-calling, bullying, trolling, harassment, sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexualised language, the deliberate excluding of others and domestic violence); how to report concerns and get support, and the consequences of hurtful behaviour
