Student Wellbeing at BPS

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 allow them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Wellbeing at Burwood Public School

Our school’s practices support student wellbeing and positive behaviour approaches that align with our school community’s needs. Social and emotional skills related to personal safety, resilience, help-seeking and protective behaviours are explicitly taught across the curriculum in Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE).

Burwood Public School is a PBL school and uses the framework to promote positive behaviour and reteach acceptable behaviours to students who are identified as needing support.

  • Explicit teaching and reinforcing respectful relationships in PBL and Bounce Back lessons.

  • Explicit teaching and reinforcing the responsibility of being an 'upstander' in PBL lessons.
  • Developing Personalised Learning Plans and / or Behaviour plans for student wellbeing and behaviour.
