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 to help them with their physical, emotional and social wellbeing. Within a Curriculum for Excellence there is a greater emphasis placed on health and wellbeing, recognising the need for children to develop positive, informed attitudes to taking care of themselves. It includes children being active, eating healthily, emotionally resilient and able to make informed choices. As part of this we don’t allow children to bring fizzy drinks into school and encourage pupils to bring healthy snacks into school. We encourage our pupils to be as active as possible at play time. Each class also has a minimum of two hours of P.E. per week.
We utilise Glasgow’s Sexual Health and Wellbeing programme. Information about this is given to parents/carers at P1 Induction Days in May and well in advance of lessons being taught. The materials utilised are available for parents/carers to view in the school. Any parent/carer who wishes to discuss this programme should contact our Senior Management team.
