The Children’s Health Project delivers an holistic programme for health and wellbeing in Primary schools both in the UK and abroad. We promote four key areas of health (Healthy Movement, Healthy Eating, Healthy Habits and Healthy Thoughts) to offer a comprehensive physical and mental health curriculum.
In purchasing this Scheme, you will have access to our four Health Champions, to be used across your school. Reference them in assemblies, during lessons, in your extra curricular clubs and in your promotional materials:
This Scheme of Work can be used in PE, Science, PSHE and DT lessons, requiring NO ADDITIONAL CURRICULUM TIME at all. Alternatively, this could be delivered in a unique, weekly curriculum lesson for Health and Wellbeing. Some schools have purchased it to plan inclusive extra curricular clubs. The themes can be delivered at the same time across the whole school, linking to your assembly themes, homework themes and PSHE themes.
Each lesson engages the pupils to work towards twelve learning outcomes:
LO1 Pupils demonstrate motivation and confidence to engage in daily physical activity
LO2 Pupils are moving for at least one hour a day (moderate to vigorous activity)
LO3 Pupils feel knowledgeable about their body
LO4 Pupils demonstrate an awareness of healthy and less healthy foods
LO5 Pupils make healthy food choices most of the time
LO6 Pupils demonstrate an understanding of how food affects their body, in terms of mood, energy and immunity

LO9 Pupils demonstrate a positive body image
LO10 Pupils show an awareness of mindfulness, and endeavor to be mindful in their daily lives
