Relationship and Health Education - Life to the Full

Personal, Social, Health and Economic

The Health Education and Relationships Education aspects of PSHE (personal, social, health and economic) education was made compulsory in all primary schools in September 2020.

The Department for Education published Statutory Guidance for Health Education, Relationships Education and RSE.

It ensures that every child is guaranteed a PSHE education that covers mental health and wellbeing, physical health (including healthy lifestyles and first aid) and learning about safe, healthy relationships, including understanding consent and negotiating life online.


RHE - Life to the Full Programme

Life to the Full  covers the statutory requirements of Relationships and Health Education. It is based on the structure of the Model Primary RSE Curriculum from the Catholic Education Service. This is the basis for all the lessons and resources. This itself is cited as a work of good practice by the DfE . As a school we will be delivering a programme that puts Catholic education at the very heart.

‘Life to the Full’: a fun, dynamic and exciting programme of work that will greatly develop the social, moral, cultural and spiritual education of our children. The programme adopts a spiral curriculum approach so that as a child goes through the programme year-after-year, the learning will develop and grow, with each stage building on the last.

Programme Pathways

The programme is taught over three terms each year. This means that the full Learning Stages are run twice (e.g. the full KS1 programme is run with Year 1 and then repeated with Year 2). This is the recommended pathway. The programme is a progressive, spiral curriculum which, by its very nature, returns to similar themes and content at each Learning Stage, but at different levels. Repeating the curriculum is not a wasted exercise, but an opportunity to embed learning and for children to benefit from their own and peers’ new levels of experience and maturity. The aim of every session should be child-centred and developmental.
