At Campbells Creek Primary School, we want healthy and happy students and believe this includes having a healthy mind and an active body. Our Student Wellbeing and Engagement Policy (revised in 2020) outlines our approach to behaviour management as well as the support structures we have in place for the mental, social and emotional health and wellbeing of our students. Some of our wellbeing related programs included in this policy include:
Student Welfare Officer
We are very lucky to have access to a part time Student Welfare officer through funding provided by the National School Chaplaincy Program. This means that we are better able to support the social and emotional wellbeing of our students. Our Student Welfare Officer works closely with staff, students and families to provide support in many areas, including social skills, student attendance, engagement and mental health.
We have 4 house teams which are used to celebrate success in all areas of schooling. Points are given to the houses for a range of behaviours from completing homework, positive behaviour in class or in the yard and whole school sports events.
At our end of year concert, a shield is awarded to the House who earns the most points.
Kangaroo - Red Dingo - Yellow Platypus - Blue Koala - Green
Student Support Officers
Our students have access to a range of Student Support Officers (SSOs) including psychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists and physical therapists as well as onsite visits from registered Nurses and Dental Vans.
We offer many opportunities for our older students to develop their leadership skills. These include having 2 School Captains and 2 Vice Captains and 8 House Captains (2 for each house). We also have representatives from each class on the Student Representative Council (SRC) which provide the students with a voice within our school.
All grades implement the Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships curriculum. The Respectful Relationships learning materials have been designed to develop students' social, emotional and positive relationship skills. Promoting these skills have been shown to improve health related outcomes and reduce antisocial behaviours such as domestic violence and gender based violence in the community.
We pride ourselves on continually striving to be a more inclusive school. All of our policies and procedures ensure we are considerate of students academic, physical, social and emotional needs. Our school is proud to be a safe school for all of our students, families and staff.
