Healthy Schools curriculum statement
Our Lady’s Primary School recognises that a healthy school is one that is successful in helping pupils to do their best and build on their achievements. It is committed to ongoing improvement and development. It promotes physical and emotional health and wellbeing by providing accessible and relevant information and equipping pupils with the skills and attitudes to make informed decisions about their health based on positive attitudes and information. We will liaise with outside agencies to ensure all information is current and relevant to our pupils and staff.
A healthy school understands the importance of investing in health to assist in the process of raising levels of pupil achievement and improving standards. It also recognises the need to provide both a physical, emotional and social environment that is conducive to learning. With this in mind. Our Lady’s will ensure pupils have a safe working and playing relationships and environment both inside and outside of school. We aim to provide high quality Physical Education and School Sport and promote Physical Activity as part of a lifelong healthy lifestyle. We will help children develop greater confidence, motivation, self-esteem and have the skills, information and understanding to make important life and health choices. To provide children with more choices as to how they use their playtime by the development of break and lunchtime clubs and activities. Through these children will also learn how to develop good relationships and respect the differences between people.
