Health & Wellbeing

Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health

At Oldbrook School emotional health and wellbeing is taught through the SEAL programme which is incorporated into our PSHE planning.

We develop the skills needed for pupils to work with each other in groups and to understand the opinions of others. Emotional health, well-being and resilience are at the core of teaching and learning.

Our learning mentor runs interventions to help pupils increase confidence, enhance their learning, improve their relationships with peers, resolve conflicts and feel happier at school.

Healthy Eating

The national curriculum develops pupils’ knowledge of healthy eating and a balanced diet through science, design technology and cross curricular links.

Healthier Together

The Healthier Together website is a digital resource designed to support children, young people and their parents/carers. It aims to empower parents and carers – giving them the right tools to manage their children and young people’s physical health and emotional well-being.
