Relationships, Sex and health education (RSHE)
As part of our commitment to developing the whole child, our school provides Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) sessions from EYFS to Year 6. Relationships and Health Education became statutory in all primary schools in the Summer term of 2021, with schools being advised to an adopt an additional age-appropriate Sex Education programme.
The programme selected to be used at Christ the King is ‘Life to the Full’ by TenTen. This programme has been written by Catholic scholars and has been developed to address the new statutory requirements outlined by the government as well as being sensitive to the Catholic context.
For further information about the sessions taught and the key decisions the school has made, in consultation with parents, staff and governors alike, regarding matters such as naming genitalia and teaching about the dangers of pornography, please expand the relevant tab below.
Below is the recording of the Virtual Parent Information session on RSHE held by Miss Dodd, RE Lead and Assistant Headteacher, in May 2021.
‘Life to the Full’ provide an online Parent Portal to support families in facilitating open, healthy discussions on the topics covered in this subject. The portal provides example activities to support parent-child discussions, suggested conversation topics and how to answer difficult questions.

The TenTen programme has now begun in all classes following our progression pathway. A parent session is provided for children in Years 5 and 6 as the content becomes more sensitive. Please see the recording of this year's session held in September 2021.
