Health & Wellbeing

Health & Wellbeing

Children need to experience what it feels like to develop, enjoy and live a healthy lifestyle. They also need to learn ways of dealing with the many new and challenging situations they will experience throughout their lives. A healthy lifestyle supports physical, social and emotional wellbeing, and underpins successful learning. Concerns about the health, diet and activity levels of Scotland’s children and young people, social inclusion and inequalities in health emphasise the importance of a focus on health and wellbeing throughout education, starting in the early years.

Learning through health and wellbeing enables children at St. Gerard’s to:

  • experience positive aspects of healthy living and activity for themselves
  • develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, abilities and attitudes necessary for their physical, emotional and social wellbeing now and in their future lives
  • make informed decisions in order to improve their physical, emotional and social wellbeing
  • apply their physical, emotional and social skills to pursue a healthy lifestyle
  • make a successful transition to the next stage of education
