Good health is the foundation of successful adulthood so 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 identify the people who look after us and help us to take care of ourselves moving up to knowing how to look after self for good general health and know what services to access and how. Students start by identifying useful phrases or vocabulary to use in order to let someone know that we feel unwell. Moving through to identifying some of the 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 caring for others
- Technology for good health
- Healthy relationships
- Healthy lifestyles
- Lifestyle choices
- Access to health and social care
- Mental health
- Social and emotional health
