We are committed to ensuring a safe and happy environment for your child.
We support your child’s health and safety through a range of strategies including:
- the behaviour code for students, which outlines the standards of behaviour expected in all NSW public schools
- anti-racism education
- anti-bullying programs
- conflict resolution and mediation training
- peer support
- road safety education
- the Healthy School Canteen Strategy.
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.
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.
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.
Governor Philip King Public School operates a very successful Student Parliament. The students are involved in making decisions and recommendations which benefit the entire student body.
This plan outlines the processes for preventing and responding to student bullying in our school and reflects the 'Bullying: Preventing and Responding to Student Bullying in Schools Policy' of the New South Wales Department of Education. Parents, caregivers, students and community members, representing the diverse students of Governor Philip King Public School (G.P.K.P.S), have contributed to the development of the school's Anti-bullying Plan. Students and community were involved in the planning stages of this document to identify the strengths and weaknesses in the plan, to ensure the needs of our students were being addressed.
