Pastoral Support at Bare Trees


Our Pastoral Mission Statement


Bare Trees Primary School actively values and supports pupils and staff on their journey to positive mental health. We aim to make a positive difference to pupils and staff mental health and wellbeing.


Over the course of their education, children spend over 7,800 hours at school. With such a huge amount of time spent in the classroom, schools provide an ideal environment for promoting good emotional wellbeing and identifying early behaviour changes and signs of mental distress. Evidence shows that health and wellbeing programmes in schools, can lead to significant improvements in children's mental health, and social and emotional skill.

The Pastoral Team


Oldham Council Support and Resources


The Oldham whole school and college approach to emotional health and mental wellbeing aims to promote social, emotional and mental wellbeing.


The framework offers practical guidance to schools and colleges to develop knowledge and skills to promote mental health and wellbeing and prevent minor problems from escalating into more serious long-term issues.


The document contains key actions that head teachers and college principles can take to embed the whole school approach to emotional health and mental wellbeing.


The actions are based on the eight principles.


These are:

  • The school ethos and environment

  • Curriculum, teaching and learning

  • Student voice

  • Staff development, health and wellbeing

  • Identifying need and monitoring impact

  • Working with parents / carers

  • Targeted support
