Emotional Health & Mental Wellbeing
At St Matthew's 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.
