At Sennen School we place a high priority on Personal, Social, Health and Emotion education. PSHE education helps pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions to succeeding in their first job, PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up.
We ensure that high quality, thought provoking sessions take place weekly in all classes using the Kapow scheme of work. The scheme incorporates all RSE objectives and these are built into the PSHE programme. Children keep a journal of their activities so that they can see the progress they have made.
Ground rules were decided by all classes before sessions started and are revisited regularly to help chidlren feel safe and confident to participate in lessons.
Children are taught how to keep themselves safe, who their trusted adults are, and what they can do if they feel they need to speak out.
All classes contain 'worry boxes' that are checked regularly and actions taken where needed.
