We are starting 2023 with a busy January full of CPD opportunities for primary and secondary staff. We have seven CPD sessions on offer this month, linked either to Life to the Full or Collective Worship!
Upcoming January CPD Sessions
As well as On-boarding courses for new staff and more in depth Twilight Sessions for Collective Worship and Life to the Full (Primary and Secondary), we have an important Life to the Full session for SLT and Governors towards the end of the January, which will address some of the recent questions and challenges presented in the delivery of RSHE.
Life to the Full Primary:
- Wednesday 4th January – On-boarding new staff (30mins)
- Thursday 5th January – Online Twilight Session (60mins)
- Wednesday 11th January – On-boarding new staff (30mins)
- Thursday 12th January – Online Twilight Session (60mins)
Life to the Full Secondary:
- Wednesday 18th January – On-boarding new staff (30mins)
- Thursday 19th January – Online Twilight Session (60mins)
- Thursday 26th January – Life to the Full for SLT & Governors (45mins)
You may have already looked ahead to book the sessions in the first week in January – but if you miss them, don’t forget you can always use our ‘Watch Again’ function!

Life and Death in Rome
Everywhere you turn in Rome there are joyful signs of life and sobering reminders of death! Rome: a bustling city, with rich architecture, art, history and open-air opera. Delicious aromas of espresso and the flavours of pizza and gelato – a feast for the senses! Here in the midst of all this hustle and bustle of life, lies the home and much history of Catholicism.

The Law and DIY Abortions
The phrase ‘DIY abortion’ might conjure up tragic images from times before abortion was legalised; characterised by fear, judgement of ‘unfeeling’ or ‘promiscuous’ women and a lack of understanding or communication about changing attitudes towards sex. A particularly harrowing episode of ‘Call the Midwife’ involving a backstreet abortion springs to mind. Now, more than 50 years on, have things changed?
‘It is love that has explained everything to me’
‘It is love that has explained everything to me,’ is a quotation from St John Paul II, but what did teachers from around the country think about learning about his Theology of the Body?

Bullying is not funny, I think we’d all agree on that. Therefore, I was quite surprised to find that bullying related humour is a thing!
My Three Confessions…
My friends and family sometimes say that I share too much too soon, so maybe it’s too soon to share these confessions after only working with Ten Ten Resources for four months.
Addressing Gender Stereotypes
“Hmmm… it looks like a tampax advert!” This was the response of my male friend (on more than one occasion!) when we were discussing the colours on a poster for events we were organising at university.
Finding the ‘Hallow’ in Halloween
On the eve of All Hallows or as most of us know it, Halloween – children and adults dress in skeleton, witch or ghoul costumes, surrounded by cobwebs, images of graveyards and terrifying accessories to celebrate the seasonal trick or treat fest with sugar highs and scary frights!
In creating the Life to the Full programme we have tried to pitch the resources at an age-appropriate level for children within each learning stage.

We are delighted to announce that we have created a number of exciting new CPD opportunities for both subscribers and non-subscribers in the areas of Collective Worship and RSHE.
