Healthy Lifestyle

Be aware of how physical activity, diet and wellbeing contribute to a healthy and balanced life style  

The Healthy Lifestyle Aim is designed to raise awareness in all our learners about the importance of making good choices in life to support both mental and physical wellbeing.

The emphasis is on giving pupils learning opportunities in real situations where they can make choices, develop new tastes, practice making good choices again and again in a range of environments. The idea of a healthy lifestyle can be rather abstract and unhealthy choices are often more appealing therefore to be meaningful to our pupils they must experience making decisions on a daily basis around lifestyle choices.

Many pupils at Fordwater will need ongoing health care support into adulthood, it is important that they understand how too access health services and how different services and community provision can help them maintain good health and wellbeing habits.
