Student wellbeing

Supporting student wellbeing at our school:

Student welfare policies

Curl Curl North Public School's Student Welfare Policies support student wellbeing across the school so that the academic and social needs of students are met through teaching and learning programs that support each student. These policies are the basis on which the happiness and success of students at school relies.

There are a number policies that are relevant to student wellbeing. They include:

  • The School Discipline Policy
    This policy includes the school rules, strategies to promote discipline and effective learning, strategies for dealing with unacceptable behaviour and an anti-bullying plan.
  • The Recognition and Achievement Policy
  • The Reporting Policy

Positive Behaviour Engaging Learners (PBEL)

PBEL is a program that provides students with positive strategies to help them achieve their goals based on core expectations.  The program aims to enhance student engagement with school and learning, promote student competence and provide consistent support for academic and behavioural standards and expectations

At Curl Curl North we follow the Curly Code, three expectations that are demonstrated across all areas of school life:

Be Respectful
  • Take pride in yourself and your school
  • Use good manners
  • Show consideration towards others
Be Responsible
  • Care for your property and the school environment
  • Come prepared and be punctual
  • Work and play safely
Do Your Personal Best
  • Challenge yourself
  • Celebrate your success and the success of others
  • Have a positive attitude

The House System

The house system fosters trust, confidence and a team spirit among students, their house leaders and teachers. It applies in the sporting context as well as in and out of classrooms. A competition is run throughout the year and a progress report is given each week in assembly.

Leadership

In year 5 students are nominated to stand as student leaders for the following year. School Captains and Vice-captains are elected each year by the students and staff along with 6 prefects.

All year 6 students are rostered to assume various responsibilities and roles including the running and organising of the Year 3-6 Assembly each week, the collection and administration of the points system for the House, Class and Uniform Competitions and other duties that contribute to the running of the school.

The Buddy Program

Year 6 and Kindergarten students are teamed up as buddies or partners from the beginning of each year. Year 6 students assist with the orientation and induction of the Kindy students and are involved in ongoing activities such as the Easter Hat Parade and the Teddy Bears' Picnic as well as assisting in classrooms when time is available.

Peer Support

The Peer Support Program is a skills based, experiential learning program. It encourages peer connections throughout the school and assists students in developing practical skills to enhance social and emotional wellbeing such as resilience, optimism, assertiveness, decision making, problem solving and leadership.

It assists in achieving and maintaining a positive school culture by empowering young people to support each other and contribute positively to their school and community. The Peer Support Program involves a whole school approach which includes teachers, students and parents.

Student Representative Council (SRC)

The SRC is comprised of class representatives from Years 1-6. The representatives meet fortnightly to discuss ways we can improve our school.
