Learning in health and wellbeing ensures that children and young people develop the knowledge, understanding and skills which they need now and in the future.
Through our action, interactions, the ethos we create and the curriculum we offer in health and wellbeing we aim to encourage all members of our community to:
- develop self-awareness, self-worth and respect for others
- meet challenges, manage change and build relationships
- experience personal achievement and build resilience and confidence
- understand and develop physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing and social skills
- understand how what we eat, how active we are and how the decisions we make about our behaviour and relationships affect our physical and mental wellbeing
- participate in a wide range of activities which promote a healthy lifestyle
- understand that adults in a school community have a responsibility to look after the young people in our care , listen to their concerns and involve others where necessary
- learn about where to find help and resources to inform choices
- assess and manage risk and understand the impact of risk-taking behaviour
- reflect on our strengths and skills to help me make informed choices when planning next steps
- acknowledge diversity and understand that it is everyone’s responsibility to challenge discrimination.
As well as delivering a comprehensive physical education programme and sporting initiatives in school (see Events page), we are committed to developing pupil participation and enjoyment across a variety of sports.
Children are given the opportunity during breaktimes and lunchtimes to take part in skipping, basketball, hula hooping, netball shooting, team games (football, rugby, etc), traditional playground games, climbing via the traversing wall, etc.
Opportunities are then provided during the year for pupils to demonstrate these skills via competitions, festivals, games against other schools and sports day.
'I enjoy P.E because it helps me to get fit and healthy and I enjoy doing the different activities. We have lots of equipment on the yard at break and lunchtimes to help everyone to enjoy playing outside and have fun'.
