The school believes positive social skills enhance and support the way children learn and interact. We use the School Wide Positive Behaviours Framework to encompass our social support. Our Wellbeing Team plan and provide social support for groups or individual students. We also seek outside agencies on behalf of families, who require more specialised support. The school has a no tolerance approach to bullying and has implemented the education department's Bully Stoppers program. At Numurkah Primary School we are committed to supporting the whole student and ensuring that we provide our students with the necessary enrichment and supports they require to set them on the pathway to success.
In our intervention program we seek to identify and address any
social emotional or learning difficulties that we know undetected can lead to
children not reaching their true potential.
Beginning in Term 4 of their Kindergarten year, our Wellbeing Team assesses the needs of our incoming students and supports them through our school readiness program, which runs for one hour once a week in Term 4.
Our Wellbeing team continues their support throughout a child’s years at our primary school, and then links in with the Wellbeing Team at the local secondary school providing group and individualised transition support.
Our Wellbeing Team consists of:
Student Wellbeing Coordinator
Student Disabilities Coordinator
Psychologist (from 2020)
Literacy Intervention Coordinator
Occupational Therapist(from 2020)
