Healthy Schools Training

ALL of our training is FREE and available to ALL school staff in ALL schools in Cornwall!  We want to offer as many training opportunities as possible to schools throughout the county, so it's really important that you cancel your place if you are not able to come along. We ask, therefore, that if for any reason you are no longer able to attend, please let us know in advance of the session. If you do not attend our training and haven't advised us with 24 hours notice, your school will be invoiced to the value of £25.

The administration of our training sessions is now hosted by Healthy Cornwall

Active School Workshop

We know that teacher engagement is crucial to pupils having high-quality movement opportunities across the school day. Therefore this training session is all about how teachers can feel confident to make activity the norm and help to ensure their pupils are reaching at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day. Within this session you will be provided with information on how being an Active School benefits pupils and the wider community and given practical support and advice around the steps you can take to become an active teacher and school.

This course can be delivered in your school as a twilight or inset session.

This Girl Can in Your School

It is continuously shown throughout research that girls are less active than their male peers. This not only affects their physical health, but also their emotional wellbeing. The 'This Girl Can in Your School' training session will give you an insight into the barriers that girls face in being active, and identifies things that you can do to help break down these barriers in a school setting, and in every day to day life!

If you are working in a Primary school setting, this training will help you achieve step 2 of Youth Sports Trust’s '5 ways to transform primary schools with the PE and Sport Premium' model. If you are working in a Secondary school setting, this training session may be a good way to increase your knowledge about why some young females in your school are not engaged with being active - and how you can help break down the barriers and encourage them to be more active!   

After completing the training you will receive a 'This Girl Can in Your School' starter kit, which includes a combination of adapted free resources from a number of different campaigns and initiatives that address some of the barriers that young females face when engaging with physical activity.

This course can be delivered in your school as a twilight or inset session.

Healthy School Award Support

We've updated our Healthy Schools support for schools in Cornwall! We can come along to meet with you at your school to explain how to use our online tools to document the great work you are doing in a Whole School Approach to emotional health and wellbeing for your school community.  This may identify some areas where we can support with training and resources. We can meet one to one with your healthy schools coordinator, and/or facilitate a staff meeting where you and your colleagues can work towards gaining a Healthy School award. Contact us to arrange.

For all school staff and children’s workforce.

Improve your skills, knowledge and confidence in talking to children and young people about healthy relationships, consent, puberty, effects of media on sexual development and behaviour, keeping safe and answering tricky questions in an age/developmentally appropriate manner. Excellent preparation for RSE delivery in 2020!

This is a 3 day training course, and participants must commit to attending all 3 dates.

Speakeasy Cornwall Workforce Training has been developed over the last 10 years for our multi-disciplinary children’s workforce – many of whom have had no specific training in this important area throughout their professional training and career.

The course enables participants to develop their skills, knowledge and, crucially, confidence in discussing with children and young people topics such as;

consent, puberty, healthy and unhealthy relationships, personal boundaries, keeping safe, sex, sexuality, gender, transgender, sex and the law, sexual health, answering tricky questions and the impact of the media on children and young people’s sexual development/understanding.

Staff Wellbeing

This is an interactive workshop, based around the Five Ways to Wellbeing – Connect, Give, Keep Learning, Be Active, Take Notice/Be Mindful.  It is designed to allow staff to think about the ways they already incorporate these activities into their everyday lives, and the ways they might be able to do more or other things.  It works well as a team building exercise too.  There is also an opportunity to think about ways to celebrate the workforce in school, and signposting to further support.

Contact us to arrange dates for your school's inset or twilight session.

Whole School Approach to Good Mental Health

Our Whole School Approach to Good Mental Health training and support has had a little re-vamp and update over the summer to ensure that all of the information that we deliver is current.  We have found that delivering the training in the school setting to all staff (where possible) is the best approach to considering what mental health is (and isn’t), ideas to stop stigma, risk and resilience factors and why mental health is SO important to schools.

Our signposting has been updated on our website, so schools can now access links to websites, lesson plans and anti-stigma campaigns via this easy to use page.

Our training session is now delivered only as a two hour session, which can be at a time to suit your school.  It is appropriate for all members of school staff, and works well as a precursor to ReSET (Resilience and Self-Esteem Toolkit) and/or our new two hour Staff Wellbeing workshops.

Contact your Healthy Schools Delivery Advisor or contact us to discuss a time and date for your free training session.
