Saint Pius X Catholic High School



How is PSHE Taught at Saint Pius Catholic High School? 

Throughout KS3 and KS4, students study the statutory PSHE content alongside additional content including careers and financial education. Students in Year 7, year 8 and year 10 receive one hour of dedicated PSHE lesson time on their timetable whilst Year 9 and Year 11 students receive PSHE education through cross curricular teaching alongside drop-down days where appropriate. The intent of PSHE at Saint Pius X is to provide students with knowledge that will enable students to pursue their academic and social ambitions successfully.  

The teaching of PSHE throughout the school year can be roughly mapped as follows; 

Autumn 1 

Autumn 2 

Spring 1

Summer 1

Human rights and citizenship 


Drugs Education

PSHE is focused around three core themes as recommended by the PSHE Association; 

  1. Health and well-being- self-concept, mental health and well-being, healthy lifestyles, drugs, alcohol and tobacco, managing risk and personal safety, sexual health 
  1. Relationships- positive relationships, relationship values, forming and maintaining respectful relationships, consent, parenting, bullying, abuse and discrimination and social influences 
  1. Living in the wider world- choices and pathways, work and career and financial choices 

Please note that other aspects of the PSHE curriculum are covered cross curricular alongside the other subject areas within school.
