Advice for parents and carers supporting the home learning of secondary school children (year 7 to 11).
At The Oaks Secondary School, we aim to promote positive mental health for every child, parent / carer and staff. We pursue this aim using both universal, whole school approaches and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at identified vulnerable pupils and families.
In addition to promoting positive mental health, we aim to recognise and respond to mental ill health. The Oaks Secondary School work closely with CAMHS. The Oaks School offers a Listening Matters Program which supports pupils emotional well-being. We recognise that by developing and implementing practical, relevant and effective mental health procedures we can promote a safe and stable environment for children affected both directly, and indirectly by mental ill health.
The school has achieved The Silver Mental Health Award for schools.
