PSHE

Intent

At Perranporth School, we want children to leave with the knowledge, understanding and emotional regulation to enable them to play an active and positive role in today’s society.

PSHE is central to our ethos, enabling the children to live healthy, safe and responsible lives. We believe it is important for the children to recognise that physical health and mental health are interlinked, that good physical health contributes to good mental health, and vice versa.

Our meaningful PSHE curriculum is the key to children becoming confident, tolerant and well-rounded adults.  When they leave us, we want the children to be able to approach a range of real-life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate themselves through modern life.

Through high quality teaching we enable the children to address important, current issues that may affect them already and will be a big part of their future:

We want the children to understand about the importance of family and the people who care for them, about caring, respectful relationships, and about how to stay safe online.

We want them to understand equalities, their role in the current climate crisis, the importance of being part of the community and how to positively make an impact, the importance of respecting different faiths, about discrimination and rights, about the history of the Royal Family and what the constitution is.

RSHE

The intent of our Relationships Sex and Health Education (RSHE) is to give students the information they need to help them develop healthy, nurturing relationships of all kinds. RSHE enables them to know what a healthy relationship looks like and what makes a good friend, a good colleague and a successful committed relationship.

RSHE includes what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour in relationships to help students to understand the positive effects that good relationships can have on their mental wellbeing, identify when relationships are not right and understand how such situations can be managed.

RSHE supports students in developing resilience, to know how and when to ask for help, and where to access support. 

We understand that as children grow older they will be faced with many varied situations within their social groups. We want our children to have the necessary, age appropriate, information to make sensible and informed decisions so that they are safe. In today’s world the use of the internet plays a crucial role, and we want our children to understand how do this safely and with an understanding of the risks.
