We use the Diocesan approved Ten Ten Life to the Full program – from Reception to Year 6. The children will complete at least five lessons per half term. The appropriate lessons are shared and taught across each Key Stage. Each Key Stage will cover all units applicable and by the end of each Key Stage all units and modules will have been covered before pupils’ transition to the next Key Stage and the next parts of the program.
The program 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. It is fully inclusive of all pupils and their families.
The RSHE curriculum at St Benedict’s teaches our pupils how to manage their emotions and understand what happens to them as they grow up, how to handle this, and where to go if they need help. Working closely with parents we are equipping them with the knowledge and emotional intelligence needed to be a healthy, happy and productive member of society, in an ever changing and fast-paced world.
