Healthy Harris

Intent

Healthy Harris is one strand of our Personal Development Curriculum which equips our students with the knowledge of safeguard issues within school, wider life, and our community. We have carefully sequenced our Healthy Harris Curriculum around these three themes:

  • Food and Exercise
  • Safeguarding Boosters
  • Mindfulness and Wellbeing Practice

The Healthy Harris strand is our cross-curricular approach to health and wellbeing, encompassing, safeguarding, physical fitness, nutrition and diet and mental health. Delivered through tutor time, Healthy Harris incorporates the three themes above to ensure students feel safe, understand the importance of routines and are aware of where they can get further support.

Healthy Harris Overview

 


Implementation – Healthy Harris Lessons

The core Healthy Harris sessions are implemented once a week during a 30-minute tutor time session. The Healthy Harris curriculum is further developed and enhanced through the Academy’s assembly programme and our IID Drop Down Days.

Healthy Harris is our HASU way of ensuring the culture of safeguarding is embedded within the Academy ensuring students feel safe and supported. Safeguarding boosters can range from an array of different topics which reflect Keeping Children Safe in Education and focuses upon our contextual risks. For example, in Autumn 2 our safeguarding boosters focus on Domestic Abuse, Self-Harm and Mental Health and Anxiety. It is essential students know how to recognises forms of harm, the signs, and symptoms but most importantly for us at HASU, it is the building trust with our students so students feel confident in making disclosures so we can help prevent students from harm.

Through our mindfulness and wellbeing sessions, we also aim to ensure students become resilient in the face of adversity and ensure they are equipped with the tools to deal with day-to-day life and the challenges that may come throughout their life. Finally, we look at Food and Exercise sessions to understand the link between physical health and mental health in order to ensure students know the benefits of regularly exercise and healthy eating with regards to their wellbeing.


Impact

Each half term, students are set a quiz on Satchell One to test their knowledge and check their understanding of safeguarding topics. The quiz is analysed after completion which allows us to have confidence in students’ understanding and close any knowledge gaps which may have been identified.
