Relationship and Health Education
To ensure we are compliant in the delivery of Relationship and Sex education, St Anne's follows the 'Life to the full' programme. It is a fully resourced scheme of work in relationships and health education for Catholic Primary schools which embraces and fulfils the new statutory curriculum.
Taught with a spiral approach to learning, in which pupils will revisit the same topics at an age-appropriate stage through their school life, 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.
