Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE)
At St. Thomas of Canterbury, we deliver the Relationship, Sex and Health Education curriculum through the Life to the Full programme produced by Ten Ten and supplement it with additional resources to ensure coverage. By using this programme, staff and parents deliver a fully-integrated and holistic programme in that truly enables children to ‘live life to the full’ (John 10:10). There is an entire platform of creative resources that engage, inform and inspire children, parents and staff. This includes interactive video content, story-based activities and original worship music, all whilst employing a wide range of teaching tools and an accompanying programme of classroom prayers.
The RSHE curriculum is fully inclusive of all children, families and teaching staff. From the very start, the programme acknowledges that families are made up in different ways and it celebrates the family unit in whatever form it takes. The programme is flexible and we can build on this teaching, depending on the cohort, to ensure that every child is assured, and their family background is affirmed. The programme emphasises very strongly the dignity of every person as being created and loved by God.
