Learning in health and wellbeing ensures that children develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, capabilities and attributes, social and physical wellbeing now and in the future. Children will experience certain aspects of health and wellbeing through focused programmes such as personal and social education programmes. Health and Wellbeing isn’t a single subject, it is organised into six areas:
- Mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing
- Planning for choices and changes
- Physical education, physical activity and sport
- Food and health
- Substance misuse
- Relationships, sexual health and parenthood
All pupils receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE each week. A specialist PE teacher, based at Eastwood High School, teaches most pupils for one period every week.
The aim of Health and Wellbeing is to develop young people as successful learners, confidnet individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens.
