Health and Wellbeing

Learning in health and wellbeing ensures that children and young people develop the knowledge, understanding and skills which they need now and in the future.

Good health and wellbeing is central to effective learning and preparation for successful independent living.

 Aspects of health and wellbeing include:

  • Mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing
  • Physical education, physical activity and sport
  • Food and health
  • Substance misuse
  • Relationships

We aim to inform and involve parents in any sensitive aspects of a child’s learning, such as relationships, sexual health and drugs awareness.  A meeting is held annually with P6 and any new P7 parent before teaching of relationships/sexual health takes place at P6/P7 stages and a letter is sent to P1 parents before they learn about The Body.  Parents are welcome to ask for further information about any sensitive aspects of the curriculum.

Work we do in this area of the curriculum supports our pupils in dealing with difficult situations and also helps to create relaxed and confident learners.  Some aspects of social development can be addressed through “Circle Time” in class.

All pupils have 3 weekly PE lessons, which provide them with opportunities to develop physical skills, encourage confidence and cooperation with others and to foster a positive attitude to health and fitness. 

After school activities include netball, running, cricket, rugby, hockey, football and choir. We work closely with our Active Sports Coordinator.
