Relationship, Sex and Health Education
Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
At St Ethelbert’s we recognise that today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In our school environment, we strive to offer educational opportunities that help our children to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way. To support our children in gaining the best learning experience we use the ‘TenTen Live Life to the Full’ programme.
TenTen Live Life to the Full
‘Live Life to the Full’ is a programme in Relationships Education based on the Department of Education guidance which became statutory from September 2020. This programme is rooted in a Christian understanding of the human person, based on "A Model Catholic RSE Curriculum" provided by the Catholic Education Service which was highlighted as a work of good practice by the Department of Education. Therefore, we have confidence that the programme will be fit for purpose in supporting the growth and development of your child.
Life to the Full is much more than a series of lessons. It is an entire platform of creative resources that will engage, inform and inspire our children and, indeed, you as parents. This includes interactive video content, story-based activities, employing a wide range of teaching tools, original worship music and an accompanying programme of classroom prayers.

Life to the Full is intended to be partnership between home, school and church. We know that you already do a fantastic job and we see our new programme, Life to the Full, as a means to further develop, support and enrich the partnership between home, school and church so that your child is fully supported.
If you have any further questions regarding our RSE curriculum, please contact Mr Marshall or Mrs Dowd.
