Health and Well-Being
Welcome to the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing!
Our vision is to be a Faculty in which our participants are engaged, challenged and enthusiastic about the opportunities available to them in their learning.
We aim to provide our pupils with individual and collaborative, “real life” experiences which are diverse, challenging, progressive and fun - promoting both independence and working with others.
In line with our whole school vision, we uphold the following values:
- ambition, pride, respect, equity, commitment and no excuses.
- Care, National 4 and National 5
- Health and Food Technology, National 4, National 5 and Higher
- Hospitality Practical Cake Craft, National 5
- Hospitality Practical Cookery, National 3, National 4 and National 5
- Physical Education, National 2, National 3, National 4, National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher
- Sport and Recreation, National 5
Feedback from our most recent Learning and Teaching Walkthrough highlighted our strengths and areas for development as follows:
- STRENGTHS: Clear safety routines. Clear organisation and planning for teaching and learning. Pace and challenge is set appropriately to the needs of individuals’. Differentiation is evident in more than half of lessons.
- AREAS FOR DEVELOPMENT: Improving the quality of feedback we give to our learners. Challenging our more able learners by encouraging higher order thinking and using higher order questioning techniques to encourage independent learning in our young people.
It is using this feedback, in connection with our own observations and the views of our pupils that we have constructed our priorities for our development work this session.
