The Health and Well-being Area of Learning and Experience provides a holistic structure for understanding health and well-being. It is concerned with developing the capacity of learners to navigate life's opportunities and challenges. The fundamental components of this Area are physical health and development, mental health, and emotional and social well-being. It will support learners to understand and appreciate how the different components of health and well-being are interconnected, and it recognises that good health and well-being are important to enable successful learning.
Engagement with this Area will help to foster a whole-school approach that enables health and well-being to permeate all aspects of school life.
Effective realisation of the vision described in this Area is fundamental to developing healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society. By developing learners’ motivation, resilience, empathy and decision-making abilities, they can be supported to become ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives.
Learners can also be supported to become ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world by developing their ability to show respect, to value equity, to listen to others and to evaluate the social influences affecting them.
Through enabling learners to manage risks, express ideas and emotions, develop and maintain healthy relationships, and take on different roles and responsibilities, the learning and experience in this Area can support learners to become enterprising, creative contributors ready to play a full part in life and work.

Health and Wellbeing at Cwrt Rawlin
A 'Healthy School'
In May 2017, we achieved the National Quality Award (NQA) for Healthy Schools, becoming only the 9th school in Caerphilly to gain the award!
We will shortly be renewing this award, sharing the fantastic work we continue to do at Cwrt Rawlin, in creating:
"healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society"
We were successful in renewing our NQA award in May 2019!
A 'Sustrans Active Journeys' School
On Monday 28th January 2019, Cwrt Rawlin was awarded with their Silver School Mark Accreditation Award. We are so pleased to receive an award to commend all the hard work we have put in to our Active Journeys Program. We took a baseline assessment three years ago that showed that nearly half of us came to school via car. However, our most recent results show that the amount of people travelling actively to school has risen by 14.3%. How amazing!
