St Francis Braintree


Personal, Social and Health Education involves the development of healthy attitudes, aspects of safe living and the development of good social and personal relationships. Our PSHE curriculum is underpinned by our Catholic ethos and meets the requirements of the statutory Relationship Education curriculum.

At St Francis, we follow the Life to the Full scheme of learning as a basis for our PSHE. This is complemented by our Virtues to Live by programme and supported by additional units of learning encompassing: Anti-Bullying week, Parliament week, Healthy Living, Fairtrade Fortnight and Online Safety week.  The teaching of PSHE is also part of the wider curriculum and is taught through the subjects of: Physical Education, Computing, Food Technology and Religious Education.

Life to the Full

We believe that parents and carers are the primary educators and that they should be fully aware of the content of our school's curriculum.  In regard to the Life to the Full programme for RSE, parents are able to access the Parent Portal to find out more about what the children will be learning in each year group.
