At St Anselm's, supporting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all of our pupils, rooted in the wisdom and teaching of the Church is very important to us. We have adopted 'Life to the Full' by Ten Ten Resources to support us with this teaching through our RSHE programme.
‘Life to the Full’ is a programme that is rooted in the teaching and wisdom of the Catholic Church. Through the delivery of this programme at St Anselm’s, we promote a virtuous culture within the life of the school that provides links to Gospel-rooted assemblies and contributes to daily collective worship. It inspires our children by teaching them about God’s call to love; about how God’s design for creation, especially the human body, reveals insight into His great plan for human relationships as a sign of heavenly unity.
Each key stage focuses on the same three modules using a spiral approach where children build upon prior knowledge attained from their learning in the previous key stage. Within each learning stage, there are three modules which are based on the Model Catholic RSHE Curriculum and each module is broken down into units of work.
Module 1 -Created and Loved by God
Module 2 -Created to Love Others
Module 3 -Created to Live in Community
As children progress through the school, they revisit and further explore the concepts of each module. They learn through a range of scriptures, stories and video clips, drawing upon their personal experiences and reflecting on their choices and actions. Whilst learning, teachers use questioning to assess children’s understanding of what is being taught and present them with scenarios to offer them the opportunity challenge their moral and spiritual thinking. An evaluative approach to assessment is adopted by teachers to inform them of individual progress.
At St Anselm’s, we strive to mould our children into kind, caring and thoughtful individuals who recognise difference and embrace individuality. We believe that children are made in the image and likeness of God and through our spiritual and moral teachings of our faith we support our children to become valuable members of the community and society. We believe that our children are inspired, through 'Life to the Full', about God’s call to love; about how God’s design for creation, especially the human body, reveals insight into His great plan for human relationships as a sign of heavenly unity.
