Oldham Council Support and ResourcesThe Oldham whole school and college approach to emotional health and mental wellbeing aims to promote social, emotional and mental wellbeing. The framework offers practical guidance to schools and colleges to develop knowledge and skills to promote mental health and wellbeing and prevent minor problems from escalating into more serious long-term issues. The document contains key actions that head teachers and college principles can take to embed the whole school approach to emotional health and mental wellbeing. The actions are based on the eight principles. These are:
- The school ethos and environment
- Curriculum, teaching and learning
- Student voice
- Staff development, health and wellbeing
- Identifying need and monitoring impact
- Working with parents / carers
- Targeted support
