PSHE (including RSHE) at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School





‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’ John 10:10 


So that every child can be safe, happy and healthy at St Joseph’s, we follow the Diocese’s TenTen scheme of learning to ensure a rich RSHE provision that upholds and respects the Catholic ethos of our school and church. This includes the statutory Relationships and Health Education and non-statutory Sex Education.  


 Following (and adapting) the advice from the DofE, the topics that we cover are as follows:  


  • Me, My Body, My Heath 

  • Emotional Well-being 

  • Life Cycles 

  • Personal Relationships 

  • Keeping Safe (including online safety) 

  • Living in the Wider World 


Our specific ‘pathway’ delivers the RSHE programme over 3 terms on a 2-year cycle. This means that the learning stages are spread over 2 years and there is very little repetition of content year-on-year. In light of this, children: 


  • are given the knowledge and develop the self-confidence to make informed choices and decisions; 

  • feel that they can turn to a number of trusted adults for support; 

  • are encouraged to develop their social skills and awareness; 

  • develop responsible attitudes towards the maintenance of good physical and mental health; 

  • can develop effective relationships and show a caring attitude towards others; 

  • can love and cherish the world that God has given unto us; 

  • understand the laws, rights and responsibilities within British society. 


As a parent, we understand that there may be some areas of the RSHE curriculum that you have some questions about. If you are unsure about any aspect of our learning, please either use the Parent Consultation Tool or speak to Mrs Robinson (Subject Lead) or Mrs Bryan (Headteacher).
