Emotional Health and Wellbeing

Emotional Health & Mental Wellbeing

At St. Hugh’s CE Primary School we believe that good social, emotional and mental wellbeing can create the foundations for healthy behaviours and educational attainment. This is embedded in all aspects of our wide, varied and inclusive curriculum, as outlined in our Emotional Health and Mental Wellbeing Policy. We use Oldham's whole school approach, 'Supporting Young Minds Through Tough Times' to review and plan our practice and work closely with families, outside agencies and the children themselves to promote effective emotional health and mental wellbeing awareness, guidance, support and or intervention. St. Hugh’s Primary School's lead teacher for emotional health and mental wellbeing is Mrs Jane Lisic (Deputy Headteacher).

This may help

This May Help, is a new national initiative providing mental health advice to parents and carers who have concerns about their child’s mental health.  This resource has been produced by the Quality Improvement Taskforce for Children and Young People’s Mental Health, Learning Disability, and Autism Inpatient Services.

The website gives easy-to-follow advice to help families manage their child’s mental health. This advice was developed by NHS professionals and parents who’ve been through their own child’s mental health journey. Parents and carers have shared advice that helped them and that may also help other families.

Professionals who work with children are also encouraged to use the website.

The advice on This May Help includes:

• Self-harm, 

• Gaming and online activity, 

• Teenagers safety, 

• Eating disorders, 

• School avoidance, 

• Understanding mental health, 

• Understanding teenagers,
