An opening prayer...

The Lord said to Abram, ‘Leave your country, your family and your father’s house, for the land I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name so famous that it will be used as a blessing.

‘I will bless those who bless you: I will curse those who slight you. All the tribes of the earth shall bless themselves by you.’

The programme - All that I am

The origin of this project was born from the experience of practitioners teaching primary and secondary pupils. The need to provide a curriculum in sex and relationship education that is authentic to the Church's teaching and acknowledges pupils' stage of physical and sexual development. Throughout the writing of the script and teacher-support meterials the Department consulted with primary and secondary aged pupils.

The programme is split into 5 distinct sessions - All that I am, Key Stage 2 for Year 5 and 6 teachers, Where I am, Key Stage 3 for Year 7, 8 and 9 teachers, How I am, Key Stage 4 for Year 10 and 11 teachers, and finally Who I am, Key Stage 5 for Year 12 and 13 teachers.

The sessions can be used independently, or adapted to fit existing patterns and good practice in schools. They may form part of a citizenship programme or be delivered through the school's provision for personal, social and health education (PSHE). It is the integration and the drawing together of the three elements - moral and spiritual development, factual scientific material and personal development - that underpins the whole programme.
