Student health and safety

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

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.

Medication and health administration

If your child needs to be administered medication, has an allergy, anaphylaxis, asthma or any other medical condition, we ask that you inform the school and consult your doctor to complete the appropriate action plans. All action plans should be updated annually and provided to the school.

An Individual Health Care Plan will be developed in consultation with the parent, staff and student, where practicable, and on the basis of information from the student’s doctor, provided by the parent.  

Should you need further information, please speak with our administration staff. 

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.
