Health and Well-being
Health awareness is brought to students by the courses in Food Tech that they take in KS3 together with the lessons in Physical Education which address how the healthy human body works during exercise, and how sport and physical activity promote health from cellular to whole body perspectives.
Dartford Grammar School takes mental health and emotional wellbeing seriously and we want all students to feel mentally healthy and happy. Our curriculum is designed to develop young people who have a healthy esteem, emotional resilience, are sensitive to their own needs and the needs of others, and know where to go for help when they need it.
We are always there for the young people in our care. We also welcome the opportunity to work together with parents and guardians to support young people’s wellbeing, and have introduced a Wellbeing Week early in each academic year which makes suggestions to our whole community to this end.
