Health & Wellbeing includes experiences and outcomes for personal & social development, understanding of health, physical education and physical activity, and elements of home economics.
Physical education is a regular part of the school curriculum encouraging the children to express themselves through movement, gymnastics, games and sporting activities. The pupils in St. John’s Primary have 2 hours of quality physical education per week, in line with current legislation.
The Health programme contributes greatly to the promotion of a healthy lifestyle for all.
Learning through health & wellbeing promotes confidence, independent thinking and positive attitudes and dispositions. Health and wellbeing also includes sensitive aspects of learning such as: relationships, sexual health and drugs awareness.
Parents/Carers will be informed via school newsletters when these aspects of sensitive learning will be taking place.
