Introduction to supporting health and wellbeing
What is health and wellbeing?
The purpose of the health and wellbeing curriculum area is to help every child and young person to feel cared for and valued as an individual. Learning about health and wellbeing will help your child cope with uncertainties in life, have confidence to try new and different things and make the most of opportunities that come along.
How can I help?
Health and wellbeing is important at all times of our lives. Children and young people thrive in situations where they feel safe, secure and respected. Family and friends have a strong influence on health and wellbeing and shape the habits and behaviours which can last a lifetime.
Pages in this section provide examples of activities which can support your child's learning about health and wellbeing.
