Health and Social Care

Curriculum Overview – Year 9

Year 9 Health and Social Care students have opted into this subject area. For the first half term students will sample an overall introduction to health and social care. They will then spend the rest of the year focusing on Component 1: Human Lifespan Development. Students will investigate how, in real situations, human development is affected by different factors and that people deal differently with life events. For example, how do people grow and develop through their lives? How can factors such as lifestyle choices and relationships affect this? In this component, students will study how people grow and develop over the course of their life, from infancy to old age, this includes physical, intellectual, emotional and social development, and the different factors that may affect them. An individual’s development can be affected by major life events, such as marriage or bereavement, and students will learn about how people adapt to these changes, as well as the types and sources of support that can help them. For this component, students will be assessed by coursework.
