'I have come that you might have life and have it to the full’ (John 10:10) 

St Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School, use the TenTen: Life to the full scheme and resources.  This ensures that we fully implement a compliant and engaging curriculum and RHE Policy. TenTen Resources are used widely across many Catholic schools across England. The Catholic Service and the Birmingham Diocese have approved the TenTen programme, content and resources to ensure schools undertake their statutory duty as well as teaching in line with the Catholic teachings of our Church. This approach is compatible with the guidance issued by the DfE. The DfE guidance can be found here.

Contact the school to gain access to the 'Life to the Full' Parent Portal to access all the resources, videos and view the programme content. 

At St Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School, we are committed to the education of the whole child through a broad and balanced curriculum. This includes the teaching of RHE (Relationships and Health Education) at a level which is appropriate to the age and stage of development of our children. We believe that the teaching about human love and relationships includes the teachings of Jesus at its core and promote Catholic virtues as well as equipping all children with the clear and scientific information they need to maintain successful and happy relationships and healthy minds and bodies.

Three key themes, in RSE, will be explored:

  • We are created and loved by God
  • We are created to love others
  • We are created to live in communities: local, national & global

Intent for RSE

  • For teaching and learning to be a sacred experience, with Christ known and at the core of our teaching.
  • Inspired by the examples of Pope Francis, be rooted in the principles of Catholic Social Teaching.
  • Develop communication skills necessary for life and learning, promoting high expectations and standards in reading, writing and maths across a range of subject areas.
  • Providing opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident and successful learners with high aspirations who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and wider society.
  • Providing diverse and rich SMSVC (spiritual, moral social and cultural  and vocational development) opportunities from which children develop a range of transferable skills.
  • Encourage children to respect each other and have respect for people of all faiths, race and gender, ensuring children are well prepared for a rapidly changing world.

Implementation of RHE

RHE is taught with a spiral approach to learning, the programme includes teaching about personal health, physical and emotional well-being, 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 Christian faith 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.
