Health and Wellbeing Education is an important part of the work of Aileymill Primary. It is concerned with all aspects of mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing now and in the future.
Health and Well Being is subdivided into the following areas:
- Mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing
- Planning for choices and changes
- Physical education, physical activity and sport
- Food and Health
- Substance misuse
- Relationships, sexual health and parenthood.
Pupils are given well planned opportunities to learn about their own health and well-being, relationships and health and safety in the environment. We encourage PE and with our two halls ensure that pupils have 2 hours quality Physical Education per week.
We request that snacks sent for play pieces should be healthy and only unflavoured water is permitted.
SEXUAL HEALTH AND RELATIONSHIPS EDUCATION
Sex Health and Relationship education is an integral part of a school’s health education
Programme. It focuses on the physical, emotional, moral and spiritual development of all children. Teachers are central to the delivery of sex education from Primary 1-7 and work in partnership with parents/carers and appropriate health professionals.
Parents/carers should be fully informed and consulted on the content and purpose of sex and relationship education in schools, and have the opportunity to raise concerns with school staff. On an occasion where a parent/carer wishes to exercise the right to withdraw his/her child from sex and relationship education they should discuss their concerns and alternative arrangements with school staff (as per Inverclyde Council’s Policy “Sexual Health and Relationship Education”).
