RSE Curriculum

Intent

At St. Benedict’s RSHE is an embedded part of our broad and balanced curriculum and we are aware of the close links with safeguarding, RE, SMSC and British Values. RSHE contributes to all aspects of school life and encompasses the gospel values that we aim to promote. Our intention is to promote pupil’s personal,, spiritual and health education as well as their emotional development and well being. We aim to promote this through strong links and connections with Catholic teaching and gospel values. The intemt of RSHE is to deliver a curriculum which is accesable to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child. We want our pupils to become healthy, responsible members of society. We aim to help children understand how they are developing personally and socially and to know that their own health, both physical and mental, is central to who they are. We want them to grow into outstanding citizens.

We provide pupils with the knowledge and understanding of healthy relationships and positive health outcomes that they will need in order to reach their full potential as individuals and as part of a wider community. We want them to understand and live out positive healthy relationships through to adulthood. Pupils are encouraged to develop a positive sense of self worth. We aim for children to have a respect and love for their own bodies and minds and for those around them so that they will continue to nurture this through their lives.

Crucially, we believe that this is central to the Catholic ethos of our school. RSHE at St Benedict’s is rooted in the teaching that were are all made in the image and likeness of God. Children should develop an understanding of the importance of valuing themselves as the basis for taking care of the bodies that God has given them.

Impact 

The impact of teaching RSHE Education at St Benedict’s is that all pupils will leave us with the knowledge and understanding that their body was made in God’s likeness and therefore they have a responsiblily to take care of it in the best way that they can. They will also appreciate that others around them were also created in God’s image and they therefore have a collective responsibility for the health and well being of those in their community. We want pupils to take this ethos through their secondary education and beyond.

Teaching RSHE through the ‘Life to the Full’ programme will give children the knowledge, understanding, values and skills that they will need in order to reach their potential as individuals and within their wider community. Pupils will be able to take part in a range of activities through and beyond their curriculum. In doing so, they will recognise their own worth and become increasingly aware of their place within the world. They will be able to go on to form effective, fulfilling and safe relationships that are an essential part of their futures.
