Health and Wellbeing

Emotional Health & Mental Wellbeing

At Friezland 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. 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. Friezland Primary School’s lead teacher for emotional health and mental wellbeing is Miss.R, Swaby (Headteacher & SENCO) and the lead governor is Mrs. V. Fitzpatrick.

Anyone can use this form to make a referral to Oldham’s Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH team) when there are individuals or families needing support from the Early Help team or when there are children or young people needing support for mental health issues.
