Health and wellbeing teaches your child about:
- mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing
- planning for choices and changes
- physical education, activity and sport
- food and health
- substance misuse and relationships
- sexual health and relationships.
The purpose of health and wellbeing is to help every child and young person to feel cared for and valued as an individual. Learning about health and wellbeing will help them cope with uncertainties in life, have confidence to try new and different things and make the most of opportunities that come along.
At Gourock primary we look at holistic pupil development through the SHANARRI indicators:
Our pupils have designed the GIRFEC GoBot as a visual reminder of these key areas.
At Gourock primary we follow a programme called ‘Bounce Back’. It promotes positive mental health and student wellbeing and is a whole-school program from P1 to P7 which provides students with practical strategies and life skills to handle challenges and adversity encountered.
