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
We aim to inform and involve parents in any sensitive aspects of a child’s learning, such as relationships, sexual health and drugs awareness. 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.
All pupils have 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, dance, cricket, rugby, hockey, football and choir. We work closely with our Active Sports Coordinator.
