PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) education permeates through all areas of school life to support our children in becoming healthy, confident, self-motivated and independent members of our diverse multicultural society.
At Pennoweth, PSHE is delivered across the school through integrated topic work or discrete mini-topic units and follows guidance from both the PSHE Association and Cornwall Healthy Schools. In addition, PSHE is delivered through educational visits (including residential camps), assemblies, and activities such as Circle Time, SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning), Rights Respecting Schools and Sports Days. Pupils learn about developing and maintaining positive relationships, healthy lifestyles, personal finance, staying safe (including E-Safety), and to reflect on current and future aspirations. They develop their knowledge and understanding of how society is governed and their rights and responsibilities within it. Pupils are encouraged to contribute positively to all areas of school life and the wider community, and experience the process of democracy through the School Council and Eco-Council. Each year group from Y1-Y6 undertakes the Christopher Winter Project for Drugs and Alcohol Education, and Relationships and Sex Education as recommended by Cornwall Healthy Schools. This year, we have devised our own Building Learning Powers programme, to meet the needs of our children in developing their key life-long learning behaviours: perseverance, making connections, questioning, reflectiveness, and collaboration.
