Health and Wellbeing
We aim to help our young people develop their knowledge and understanding, skills, capabilities and attributes that are needed for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing. Guided by a progressive Personal and Social Development programme, through discussion, our assemblies and work in inter-linked subject areas, especially Social Studies, pupils are encouraged to look after themselves and others. Themes such as feelings, friendship and resolving conflict are strengthened by our early intervention programme “Roots of Empathy”. Other partner agencies e.g. Police, Health, Fire Service regularly offer guidance to staff to support individuals and work with all pupils to encourage good health, safety and citizenship. Groups such as our Eco Committee and Charities Group meet regularly to involve the school in initiatives that encourage our pupils to be Global Citizens. A minimum of two hours physical education is delivered by our primary staff and PE specialist, involving pupils in a wide range of sports and exercise.

Article 27 (adequate standard of living) Every child has the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical and social needs and support their development. Governments must help families who cannot afford to provide this.
