Welcome to PSHE at Barr Beacon School
PSHE equips Barr Beacon pupils with the skills and knowledge they need to help them deal with the real life issues and situations they may face on a day to day basis as they grow into mature and well-rounded individuals.
At Barr Beacon School, PSHE is delivered by the form tutor team for one hour a week. The programme covered in Years 7 to 11 is extensive and covers a wide range of diverse subjects. Central to the programme are the following topics:
- Drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
- Sex and relationship education.
- Emotional health and wellbeing.
- Personal finance.
- Nutrition and physical activity.
Whenever possible we use visiting speakers and theatre groups to reinforce the messages we deliver in the programme. These include presentations on fire safety, adolescent car safety, internet bullying and online grooming. We have strong links with West Midlands Fire Service, Walsall Street Teams, Teenage Cancer Trust and West Bromwich Building Society.
