Emotional Health and Well Being for Children and Families

At Oakfield we strive to actively promote positive emotional health and well being throughout the school. Within our school ethos we promote a safe and open culture where children can talk about their feelings and experiences and learn in a fail safe environment. Our talk buddy system works successfully and staff are quick to pick up on children who may need additional emotional support. We understand that at times pupils and their parents / carers may experience issues affecting their emotional health such as anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement and loss, eating disorders and self-harm. Our Mental Health champions Mrs Chafer Mrs Redfearn,  Miss Smith and Mrs Oades have access to a wide of support groups which may be of benefit to you and your family. Please click on the links below for more information about the support groups available and feel free to come and chat to Mrs Chafer or Mrs Redfearn. Mrs Chafer and Mrs Redfearn can also be contacted by telephone (01724 842246) and will calll you back as soon as possible.
