Health and Wellbeing

UN Convention on the rights of the child Article 24 (health and health services)

Every child has the right to the best possible health

Learning in health and wellbeing ensures that children and young people develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, capabilities and attributes which they need for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing

Kirkhill, working with partners, takes a holistic approach to promoting health
Our pupils can expect their learning to:
• develop their self-awareness, self-worth and respect for others
• meet challenges, manage change and build relationships
• experience personal achievement and build their resilience and confidence
• help them to participate in a wide range of activities which promote a healthy lifestyle
• help them understand that adults in their school community have a responsibility to look after them, listen to their concerns and involve others where necessary
• learn about where to find help and resources to inform choices
• assess and manage risk and understand the impact of risk-taking behaviour
• reflect on their strengths and skills to help them make informed choices when planning their next steps
• acknowledge diversity and understand that it is everyone’s responsibility to challenge discrimination
