CURRICULUM INTENT

Our PSHE curriculum has been carefully planned in order to meet the needs of our pupils.  It is our aim to equip our young people to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future, to support them in living their lives ‘in all its fulness’ (John 10;10).   Our PSHE programme of study deals with the real life issues affecting our students, families and communities. It is concerned with the social, health and economic realities of our lives, experiences and attitudes. All statutory requirements for PSHE (including RSE, Careers and Citizenship) are included within discreet PSHE lessons, and where appropriate, in other aspects of school life.

The curriculum follows a thematic approach, as devised by the PSHE Association.  Each year group has the opportunity to explore three core themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World.  The content and delivery of these themes have been specifically designed to meet the needs of our pupils.

Understanding Relationships, Sex and Health Education - A Guide for Secondary School Parents

We welcomed The Message Trust and performers Soulbox to Archbishop Temple Church of England High School, as part of the No More Knives tour.

In partnership with Lancashire Police and local churches, the No More Knives tour is being delivered to schools across Lancashire with the aim of encouraging and empowering young people to say no to knife crime. The Message Trust is a UK based Christian charity that works with young people all across world.

On Monday 13th September, we were delighted to welcome Performance in Education into school with their Streetwise programme. Our year 7 cohort watched a pedestrian road safety performance that used theatre to provide them with an engaging, learning experience. It highlighted the consequences of their actions on the roads, identify risky behaviours that need to be changed, and gave them strategies to reinforce this change through a follow-up workshop.
