At Warnbro Primary School, the health and wellbeing of our students, staff and overall school community is of upmost importance.
Embedded within our Business Plan, health and wellbeing is a key priority area for our teaching and learning programs, as well as the development and maintenance of the school’s culture.
Teachers planning and reporting aligns to West Australian Curriculum requirements for Personal, Social and Community Health. Within this they teach 3 sub-contexts including:
- Being Healthy, Safe and Active
- Communicating & Interacting for Health & Wellbeing
- Contributing to Healthy & Active Communities
Warnbro Primary School works in collaboration with SDERA , School Drug Education and Road awareness, to develop programs that are underpinned by best practices in resilience, drug and road safety education using strategies, activities or approaches which have been shown through research and evaluation to be effective. The development of whole school programs is guided by Primary Be You (formerly KidsMatter) framework which involves four core competencies including;
- Positive school community
- Social and emotional learning
- Working with parents and carers
- Helping children with mental health difficulties
Our social and emotional program is guided by The Bounce Back Program in years K to year 4 and Aussie Optimism in the upper years. Zones of Regulation, a research based emotional regulation program, is implemented across the school in all years.
To further support students to understand they have the right to feel safe at all times, all year levels complete developmentally appropriate teaching and learning programs about Protective Behaviours. The school also endeavours to form responsible and safe online citizens by emphasising online cyber safe practises. The school virtues of Respect, Excellence, Responsibility and Safety are also heavily embedded in the school culture.
