Principles and practice: health and wellbeing

The principles and practice document is essential reading for teachers as they begin, and then develop, their work with the statements of experiences and outcomes. It sets out the purposes of learning within the curriculum area, describes how the experiences are organised, and offers guidance on aspects such as learning and teaching, broad features of assessment, progression and connections with other areas of the curriculum.

This paper is closely related to the Guidance on the Schools (Health Promotion and Nutrition) (Scotland) Act 2007. Together, these documents describe the expectations upon individuals, schools and local authorities for promoting the health and wellbeing of children and young people.
