St Ambrose Barlow RC High School

St Ambrose Barlow RC High School

 PSHE

PSHE is a subject that is taught in bespoke lessons (one per week at KS3 and one per fortnight at KS4) and is also delivered across the entire curriculum by Form Tutor,  in subject area lessons, assemblies, special curriculum days and it is built in the ethos of the school - to promote positive catholic values to create well rounded members of our society. 

Within the PSHE curriculum time, pupils are able to focus on Personal, Social, health and Economic issues alongside Citizenship and Careers education. Throughout their time at St Ambrose Barlow, pupils will participate in various projects linked to these areas, which should enhance their knowledge and understanding of key issues and topics. For example, Yr 11 pupils participate in mock interviews with visitors from the world of work and practise real-life interview techniques.  In every year of the school we deliver RSE (relationship and sex education) as part of a theme of education and guidance for our students to enlighten and develop their thinking around relationships and sex education to help prepare them for all aspects of life, all within the Catholic Church guidance for schools.
