Learning in Health and Well-being supports children to understand their rights and the rights of others (Articles 2 and 42 of UNCRC). It also supports children to experience their rights to be safe and protected from harm (Articles 19, 33, 34, 36) and also promotes the right of children to relax and play (Article 31) and to have healthy food and clean water (Article 24)
In Llanrhidian the Health and Well-being Area of Learning and Experience provides a holistic structure for understanding health and well-being.

The fundamental components of this Area are physical health and development, mental health, and emotional and social well-being.
