At Kennall Vale, we follow the Cornwall PSHE Curriculum that is tailored for school in Cornwall. Lessons have been sequenced to reinforce learning and build on knowledge.  This sequence of learning is divided into three core themes, which run throughout the key stages:

Health and Wellbeing

This includes lessons on mental health, lessons on puberty and the changing body, dental health, benefits of keeping active and healthy eating.

Relationships

This includes lessons on respectful and healthy relationships both on and offline, kindness and sex education.

Living in the Wider World

This includes lessons on career planning, financial literacy and exploring our rights and responsibilities.
