Balshaw’s Church of England High School

Personal, Social, Health & Citizenship Education

PSHE is taught weekly by form tutors during two half hour lessons. The topics covered for each year group are shown on this schedule. 

In addition, Year 9 receive an hour lesson every two weeks. We feel it is important for this year group to cover some topics in greater detail as they mature and in preparation for GCSE study and life in upper school.

We also run PSHE and Citizenship days for students to cover topics and teach life skills that we feel should be explored more fully.

Details of these will be given to parents, carers and students as they occur throughout the year.

We encourage students to discuss PSHE topics with their parents/carers. If parents/carers have any queries or concerns regarding any PSHE content please do not hesitate to contact your child's form tutor or our PSHE coordinator Miss Warburton.
