Relationships and Health Education

Relationships and Health Education (RHE)


In 2020 the statutory requirements for teaching relationship education in schools changed.  This included teaching:


•relationship education in primary schools

•relationship and sex education in secondary schools

•health education in state funded primary and secondary schools


These subjects will support all young people to be happy, healthy and safe - equipping them for life as an adult in British society.


At St Joseph's, our aim is to strengthen the knowledge, skills, and connections to keep children healthy and safe and prepare them for life and work.  


'Life to the Full'  is a  recommended programme of study for Catholic schools for Relationship and Sex Education, and has been written as a progressive scheme of work that supports the Religious Education, PSHE and Science curricula taught within the school.  It is a programme in Relationships and Health Education based on the Department of Education guidance which became statutory during the academic year 2020/21. 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.
