We are committed to ensuring a safe and happy environment for your child.
We support your child’s health and safety through a range of strategies including:
- the behaviour code for students, which outlines the standards of behaviour expected in all NSW public schools
- anti-racism education
- anti-bullying programs
- conflict resolution and mediation training
- peer support
- road safety education
- the Healthy School Canteen Strategy.
For more information, visit the student wellbeing section of the department’s website.
Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:
- school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
- supporting individual students who need help with health issues
- providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.
Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.
The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.
The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.
Positive Behaviour for Learning
At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.
The Resilience Project
Through presentations, student curriculum, teacher resources and digital content, The Resilience Project’s Education Programs support mental health in the classroom, staffroom and family home.
The research is clear; the more positive emotion a child experiences, the more resilient they will be. For that reason, using The Resilience Project we focus on three key pillars that have been proven to cultivate positive emotion; Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness (GEM), with Emotional Literacy being a foundational skill to practise these strategies.
Daily lessons entwined with our PBL, build student wellbeing.
Families, Agencies, School, Together (FAST) program
What is the FAST program?
A program of support, to assist students access learning and develop successful strategies for successful learning experiences at school. In partnership with various agencies and organisations, the FAST program brings together speech therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists and counsellors, education and health professionals to create tailored programs of support for our children.
Programs run for set length of times, to provide a framework and our on-site specialists work with families to seek further additional support for their children.
Children are screened by our team as they enter our learning programs, are referred to our programs by class teachers and can be referred to our program by parents.
We currently run several programs which link into our FAST program for our students from Kinder to Year 6.
We start our engagement with school through our Tenambit Tots program, a playgroup where parents support each other, while creating relationship and skill building opportunities for children up to school age.
