St Michael's Roman Catholic Primary School

Worship Word Welfare Welcome Witness

RelationshiP and Sex Education

 

As a Catholic School within Salford Diocese, St. Michael’s Primary School have adopted ‘Life to the Full’, a programme which supports the statutory teaching of Relationship and Sex Education [RSE]. As the first educators, parents/ carers are the key people who will teach children about relationships.

As you may be aware, Relationship Education becomes statutory for all primary schools from Summer Term 2021 (The Life to the Full programme is based on ‘A Model Catholic RSE Curriculum’ 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.

In addition there will be an online parent platform so that you, as parent and carers, can engage with the teaching and deepen the experience for your child. To access the online parent platform please visit:

Please ask your child's class teach for the log in details.

In Life to the Full, we will be following a three-stage structure which is repeated across the different learning stages:
