Curriculum for Excellence is very clear about the importance of promoting the health and well being of children in all schools in Scotland. The main purpose of learning in this area is that young people will develop the knowledge and understanding of what they will need to do to ensure their mental, social, emotional and physical well-being, both as they are growing up and in the future. The importance of good health and well-being in these areas cannot be underestimated particularly in relation to the effect this can have on a child’s ability to achieve the best they can. All classes have health lessons, we promote healthy eating at school lunches and snack times. However we still enjoy the occasional treat or two for special occasions. Parents will be informed when their child is to take part in sexual health lessons and an opportunity to view the materials is offered to parents at this time. The Active Schools Co-ordinator visits and supports programmes of health and well-being on a regular basis. Staff will also support the emotional development and wellbeing of pupils though formal and informal curricular activities. Schools have access to the Primary Mental Health Worker Service and consultation and advice can be sought if there are concerns that might require more targeted support. Keiss School holds the Health Promoting School Status Award.
