Student Wellbeing

Every child is an individual who is encouraged to develop a high level of achievement across all curriculum and learning areas. It is our collective responsibility to develop their full potential as thinking, responsible and caring individuals.

We aim to ensure we have a positive school culture where everyone in our school community can feel connected, valued, safe and happy. To support this we actively promote values and the importance of relationships, communication and understanding.

At Wonthaggi North Primary School we are committed to the safety and wellbeing of children and young people. Our school community recognises the importance of, and a responsibility for ensuring our school is a safe supportive and enriching environment. We respect and foster the dignity and self-esteem of children and young people enabling them to thrive in their learning and development.

Positive Behaviour

Our whole school approach to student wellbeing and behaviour management is based on The Child Safe Standards, School Wide Positive Behaviour Support approach, The Zones of Regulation and the Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships curriculum.

The School Wide Positive Behaviour Support approach is well-researched and has been shown to enhance student wellbeing in the schools in which it is implemented. The approach aims to create a positive school culture across the school community, through consistent expectations. Students understand what is expected across the school from the front gate, to the classrooms, to the playground and outside of the school whilst on camps and excursions. Staff use consistent language, visual aids and restorative practises to support students.

Zones of Regulation

The Zones of Regulation supports all students in recognising feelings and emotional reactions and developing tools to help them self-regulate. The Green Zone is the ideal zone for learning and students often say in this zone they are ‘ready to learn’.

Respectful Relationships supports all Victorian schools and early childhood settings to promote and model respect, positive attitudes and behaviours. It teaches our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence.
