Relationships and Health Education (RHE)
The Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (England) Regulations 2019, made under sections 34 and 35 of the Children and Social Work Act 2017, made Relationships Education compulsory for all pupils receiving primary education They also make Health Education compulsory in all schools except independent schools.
At CTK, the content of RHE taught as part of a broader PSHE curriculum, will enable us to promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, at school and in society. We have chosen 'Life to the Full’ by Ten:Ten to provide our RSHE curriculum after attending a Diocesan introductory workshop. This program allows us to implement RHE within the morals of the Church's teaching. It emphasises the central importance of marriage and family whilst acknowledging that all pupils have a fundamental right to have their life respected whatever household they come from and support will be provided to help pupils deal with different sets of values.
DfE guidance states that the focus of RHE in primary school should be on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and with adults. The Life to the Full Program fully supports the DfE guidance and is complemented by resources from the PSHE Association as part of our wider PSHE program.
