Student health and safety

We are committed to ensuring a safe and happy environment for your child.

Following the incident on 17 September at Southern Cross University – Lismore Campus, we would like to share Headspace’s mental health support resource (PDF 100.52KB) for students, teachers and school staff.

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.

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.

Student welfare

We want our school to be a place where all students feel safe, physically and emotionally. Our School Discipline Policy is based on the premise that our students are learning to accept responsibility for their own actions. They learn to accept that when they make choices about their actions they should consider the consequences of those actions.

We can be justly proud of the general standard of behaviour of our students, both within and outside the school.

We recognise that we must all, parents and teachers, set examples in our own behaviour. Our Code of Conduct applies to everyone in our school.

Code of Conduct

We are great learners because we:

  • Learn as much as we can,
  • Let others learn as much as they can.

We are safe because we:

  • Always be polite,
  • Respect the rights of others.

We are respectful because we:

  • Follow teacher's directions,
  • Play safely – work safely
  • Take good care of the school and its name.

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.
