Health and Wellbeing

Healthy Eating: 

The Food4Life schools award, which is co-ordinated and managed by the Children Nutrition Team at the Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust,  is a chance for schools to celebrate and be recognised for good practice around healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle. It is given to schools that show a whole school approach to the provision and promotion of healthy food. It also ensures that the food being served in school meets School Food Standards.  Part of the award involves the team analysing the menus and making suggestions for alternatives where this is not the case.  For more information click on the link below. Congratulations to the whole school as  Broadbent Fold gained their Silver Certificate on the 20th March. Well done everyone for your continued efforts.

Emotional Health & Mental Wellbeing:

At Broadbent Fold Primary School and Nursery 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 Tameside’s whole school approach, 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. Broadbent Fold's lead teacher for emotional health and mental wellbeing is Mrs Parker (Headteacher) and the lead governor is Mr Boyle.

In recognising the significance of early intervention and prevention in mental health, our Youth in Mind initiative is specifically targeted to respond to the needs of children and young people. If you would like further information on any of our services please see the links on the right or contact us on 0161 330 9223- we will be happy to answer any queries.

Tamside, Oldham and Glossop MIND are a charity that support children and families in our area. They hold a drop in session on Thursday evenings at the Positive Steps building in Oldham town centre. You do not need an appointment to take your child, should you have any concerns about their emotional health and mental wellbeing. You can call them on 0161 330 9223. 

Anyone can use this form to make a referral to Tameside's 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.
