1 Responsibility of all Literacy Numeracy Health and Wellbeing

2 Why the responsibility of all?
Literacy and numeracy skills are essential to access the wider curriculum. Literacy, numeracy, health and wellbeing enhance opportunities in life, learning and work. Low literacy, numeracy skills are linked with social and economic disadvantage which in turn impacts negatively on health and well- being

3 What is numeracy? “Being numerate involves developing a confidence and competence in using number that allows individuals to solve problems, interpret and analyse information, make informed decisions, function responsibly in everyday life and contribute effectively to society.”

4 Numeracy across learning
To what extent do you already provide numeracy experiences to learners? Where does numeracy play a part in your normal learning and teaching? Does your teaching programme involve estimating, measuring, using and managing money, reading information from charts and tables?

5 What is literacy? “Literacy is the set of skills which allows an individual to engage fully in society and in learning, through the different forms of language which society values and finds useful.”

6 Literacy across learning
‘…the greatest impact for learners will come from all practitioners, in all learning environments, including rich literacy experiences as part of their day-to-day learning and teaching programmes.’ (principles and practice)

7 Literacy across learning
To what extent do you provide opportunities for learners to: learn collaboratively and explain their thinking to others? consider the purpose and main concerns in texts, think about reliability of information and acknowledge sources? find, select, sort, summarise and link information from a variety of sources? use language effectively to create texts which allow learners to persuade/argue/explore ideas?

8 What is health? Naidoo & Wills 2009
Health is holistic and includes different dimensions - individual, societal, environmental and global. A holistic approach to health means taking account of separate influences and the interaction of different dimensions Naidoo & Wills 2009 It’s exciting times for Health Improvement with H&WB now a curricular area in its own right. However, H&WB is not new – 5-14 Health education guidelines have been around for many years and there has been an enormous amount of good work under the HPS umbrella. No-one is starting from scratch with H&WB H&WB in CfE is about building on the good practice that has been done by health promoting schools Partnerships are crucial to success Therefore its very important that everyone in the partnership has a shared understanding of what we mean by ‘health’ This definition encapsulates the holistic nature of health in relation to the various dimensions that interact. Health is more than just ‘not being ill, not needing to go to the GP’ – it is a resource for everyday living – the better our health, the better able we are to cope with whatever life throws at us.

9 Health and wellbeing across learning
Learning through health and wellbeing promotes confidence, independent thinking and positive attitudes and dispositions. Because of this, it is the responsibility of every teacher to contribute to learning and development in this area Building the Curriculum 1 Not only is H&WB a curricular area in its own right, it is also the responsibility of ALL STAFF Italicised statements are the responsibility of all This may concern some staff, however, it is what good practitioners are already doing every day Eg all staff will not be expected to deliver SRE/Substance misuse HOWEVER, they will be expected to contribute to : Positive ethos Respect and trust Climate where C/YP (& staff) feel safe, secure and valued Understand anti-bullying, anti-discriminatory & child protection policies and procedures Make connections between H&WB Es and Os and learning and teaching in other areas of the curriculum.
