Good Health

Good health is the foundation of successful adulthood.
Therefore, we deliver an extensive curriculum to enable students to not only have an awareness of what comprises good health but also develop the knowledge and skills to manage this.

We focus on three specific areas in our primary school; Self-care, support and safety, relationships (managing feelings, changing and growing), and healthy lifestyles.  We begin by identifying the people who look after us and help us to take care of ourselves, moving up to knowing how to look after ourselves for good general health and knowing what services to access and how.  Students start by identifying useful phrases or vocabulary to use in order to let someone know that they feel unwell.  Moving through to identifying some people and organisations that can support or advise us if we are unwell.

As we progress through the good health curriculum, students will gain a deeper understanding of:

  • Personal care and care for others
  • Technology for good health
  • Healthy relationships
  • Healthy lifestyles
  • Lifestyle choices
  • Access to health and social care
  • Mental health
  • Social and emotional health
