Health, Wellbeing, PE and Games

Health and Wellbeing

The Health and Wellbeing programme runs from Nursery through to P7 and has been developed to ensure clear progression.  The programme has been divided into six distinct parts or organisers:

  • Mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing
  • Planning for choices and changes
  • Physical education, physical activity and sport
  • Food and Health
  • Substance misuse
  • Relationships, sexual health and parenthood

The programme is delivered continuously throughout the session by Class teachers apart from Physical education, physical activity and sport which is the remit of our Physical Education department.

To aid delivery Class Teachers also have external support in the following topics:

  • Police – Substance misuse (P7)
  • Substance misuse education officers (P7 Parents)
  • Internet Safety (P6 + P6/7 Parents)
  • Local Network Police team (Nursery-P4)
  • Nutrition – Rowett Institution (P7)
  • Road Safety – Road Safety Officer (P7)
  • Deborah Kennedy (School Nurse) – All classes
  • Jo (School Catering Manager) – All classes

PE and Games

Sport is an important part of life at Robert Gordon's College and forms an integral part of the Health and Wellbeing curriculum. Specialist teaching for PE begins in Nursery.

In addition to PE and swimming, pupils from Primary 3-7 are taught Games (e.g. cricket, hockey, netball, athletics, rugby, tennis) at our sports grounds at Countesswells. The annual Junior School Sports Day takes place at Countesswells at the end of May.

As well as curricular sport, our pupils have the choice of a variety of extra curricular clubs. From Primary 6, pupils can participate in hockey or rugby at Countesswells on a Saturday morning.
