Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) Parent Consultation
In the academic year 2020/21, Relationships Education and Health Education became statutory in all primary
schools in England. This new subject will build on the non-statutory lessons we have previously taught in RSE.
As a Catholic school, our mission is to support the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all of our
pupils, rooted in the wisdom and teaching of the Church. The education of children in human sexuality is an
important, precious and privileged responsibility. The Church teaches us that this is very much a partnership
with parents, in which parents are the ‘first educators’ of their children on these matters; ultimately, you
confer on us the right to co-educate your children with you.
We have been researching various programmes that are available and have decided to adopt a combination of
Journey in Love and Life to the Full by Ten Ten Resources. Ten Ten is an award-winning Catholic educational
organisation that is well-respected and very experienced in this field of work.
Journey in Love and Life to the Full have been approved by our diocese and both programmes are taught
through a Catholic Lens. Furthermore, Ten Ten have entered into a partnership with the Catholic Education
Service and the Department for Education to provide training for teachers in Catholic schools on the subject of
the new statutory curriculum. Therefore, we are confident that these programmes are a very good fit for our
Through their programme, Ten Ten understand the foundational role that parents have in educating and
nurturing their children on these matters. Within the programme, they have built in resources which will not
only keep you informed about what is being taught in school, but will also give you the opportunity to engage
your children in discussion, activity and prayer.
We would like to have your feedback on our approach, and particularly on the key decisions that we need to
take regarding the teaching of certain topics. To this end, we have opened a consultation period during which
we welcome your feedback.
