Social Emotional and Mental Health 


At Rodney House the Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEHM) curriculum aims to help young people develop as individuals in a wider society.  Young people learn to understand themselves physically, emotionally, socially, economically and to understand their relationships with others. They develop self-esteem and become competent and confident citizens who take part in a wide range of activities in and out of school

This group of learners learn most effectively when teaching and learning relates to their own experiences, sometimes through structured play or themes and other times through functional activities. The aim is to build pupils’ resilience to deal with challenges and provide foundations on which lifelong learning can be built. This programme of study is divided into:  

  • The world I live in
  • Self-awareness
  • Healthy lifestyles
  • Self-care
  • Managing feelings, changing and growing (including puberty)
