Student health and safety

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:

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.

Should students require medicines at school, parents are requested to complete the medication administration (DOCX 113KB) form and bring it to the school office with the medication.

The exception is asthma medication which may be kept by students. Please ensure the school has a copy of your child's asthma management plan.

Student wellbeing

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.

School staff promote a positive, purposeful and safe environment for children's learning. Students are guided towards developing responsible behaviour and a realisation that consequences follow behaviour. Class expectations are clearly established early in term 1 and are revisited frequently.

Our behaviour expectations of respectful, responsible, learner are taught explicitly to all students. Recognition of positive behaviour is rewarded with verbal praise, stamps, stickers, class and assembly awards.

If concerns arise regarding student behaviour, parents are contacted. Students who do not follow school expectations are referred to the thinking room at lunchtime where they reflect on their behaviour. Parents are notified if students are referred to the thinking room.
