Health and Social Care

What is the curriculum trying to achieve?

Learners will study how people grow and develop over the course of their lives from infancy to old age, and the factors that may affect this, such as major life events like marriage or parenthood.  They will understand how people adapt to these changes and the local and national health and social care support that is available to them.  Learners will develop skills in measuring and interpreting data about someone’s physiological health to design a care plan that will allow them to analyse and improve their health and wellbeing.  Overall, learners should be given the opportunity to self reflect about choices they make and how they affect others.

How do we organise learning?     

Each of our subjects organises learning to achieve our federation vision of ‘Educating today’s students for the world of tomorrow: a seamless education from 4 to 19’.  Please click here to see a visual map of students’ planned ‘learning journey’ in Health and Social care across Key Stage 4 and 5.
