Dear Parent or Carer
Relationships Education and Health Education (RHE) has become statutory in all primary schools in England.
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 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 give us the right to co-educate your children with you.
We have decided to adopt Life to the Full by Ten Ten Resources as our scheme of work for RHE.
Life to the Full has been approved by our diocese. Ten Ten have worked 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.
We would like to have your feedback on our approach, and particularly on the key decisions that we need to take on the teaching of certain topics. We are asking for your views on this.
Ten Ten have provided an online Parent Consultation Tool. This is a simple-to-follow, short online course which:
We hope that our approach not only assures you about the new subject we are going to undertake; we hope that this will be an important and exciting opportunity for our entire school community.
If you have any questions concerning the RHE scheme of work please don’t hesitate to contact me.
