Our PSHE and Relationships and Health Education Curriculum
At St. Bede’s we have adopted the Life to the Full programme to deliver our Relationships and Health Education. Life to the Full is based on the structure of ‘A Model Catholic RSE Curriculum’ by the Catholic Education Service. This model curriculum was highlighted as a work of good practice by the Department of Education so we therefore 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: www.tentenresources.co.uk/parent-portal
You will need the following login credentials for our school:
Life to the Full is intended to further develop, support and enrich the partnership between home, school and church so that your child is fully supported.
Please find attached a short document that will help to give you an overview of the structure and content of our PSHE and Health and Relationships Education at St. Bede’s.
We have teamed up with the Healthy Minds Team!
We are pleased to inform you we have teamed up with The Healthy Minds Team, South Tyneside. They are an NHS service for children and young people who attend a school or college in South Tyneside and/or are registered with a local GP to improve mental health outcomes for children and young people.
They offer evidence-based treatments, including individual, group, and family work, for a variety of common mental health issues, these may include:
- Low Mood and Depression
- Worry and Anxiety
- Controlling Anger & Emotions
- Self-Harming Behaviours
- Relationship & Family Difficulties
- Building Self Esteem
- Developing Resilience
They aim to help children and young people at the earliest possible stage, in order to support children, young people and families to develop skills and promote positive wellbeing and reduce the risk of further distress.
Our named Educational Mental Health Practitioner is Marie Holmes. Marie will be based in our school, working with Mrs Welsh, on a Friday.
We have planned assemblies to introduce the children to Marie so that she is a familiar face in school.
Year 1 and 2 will be taking part in a programme called We Eat Elephants. This is a story based approach to help children understand what they are feeling, why and how to deal with the effects.
Marie will be delivering the sessions, during PSHE, supported by Mrs Welsh.
If you would like any more information on the programme or think your child would benefit from a 1:1 programme of work with Marie, please contact Mrs Welsh directly in school.
