Child Safety & Wellbeing

At St Joseph's Primary School, the wellbeing of our students is at the heart of everything we do. We believe in fostering a supportive and nurturing environment that enables each student to thrive personally, spiritually, and academically. Our commitment extends beyond the classroom, emphasising strong partnerships with families to ensure a holistic approach to a child's development.


Wellbeing Curriculum

Our Wellbeing Curriculum is carefully crafted to empower students from Prep to Year Six with essential social skills. Through targeted weekly lessons, we explicitly teach skills that are crucial for their personal development. The focal points of these lessons include:

Developing friendships, conflict resolution, resilience, and safety (at school and online). 


We utilise evidence based programs and resources to support students social and emotional learning. Please see our school website for additional information.
