Health and Wellbeing

Health and Wellbeing

Learning in Health and Wellbeing ensures that children develop the knowledge, understanding and skills needed for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing. In King’s Oak, our Health and Wellbeing programme aims to support children in their ability to:
• Make informed decisions to improve their own mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing
• Experience positive aspects of healthy living and activity
• Apply their skills to pursue a healthy lifestyle now, and in the future
• Move successfully through each stage of education

All adults in King’s Oak share responsibility for creating a positive, supportive ethos and building respectful relationships built on trust.

Some aspects of our Health and Wellbeing programme may be delivered by sports or health specialists.

Sex and Relationship education is an integral part of a school’s health education programme. It focuses on the physical, emotional, moral and spiritual development of all children. Teachers are central to the delivery of sex education from Primary 1-7 and work in partnership with parents/carers and appropriate health professionals. Parents/carers will be fully informed and consulted on the content and purpose of sex and relationship education and have the opportunity to raise concerns with school staff. On an occasion where a parent/carer wishes to exercise their right to withdraw his/her child from sex and relationship education they should discuss their concerns and alternative arrangements with school staff. (As per Inverclyde Council’s policy “Sexual Health and Relationship Education”).
