Student health and safety

We are committed to ensuring a safe and happy environment for your child.

Following the incident on 17 September at Southern Cross University – Lismore Campus, we would like to share Headspace’s mental health support resource (PDF 100.52KB) for students, teachers and school staff.

We support your child’s health and safety through a range of strategies including:

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.

Student wellbeing

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.

Wellbeing

As a parent of a child at Arcadia you can be assured that your son or daughter is learning in a school where their wellbeing and development is our absolute priority.

We believe that social and emotional wellbeing are critical factors in the achievement of personal and academic success.  The safe, inclusive and nurturing environment of Arcadia Public School allows students to thrive.

Working with our parent community we give our children the care and attention they need to develop confidence and high self-esteem and to be active, successful learners.  Our peer support and Positive Behaviour Engaging Learners - PBEL programs develop in students a sense of responsibility and a supportive attitude towards each other whilst developing their own identity and independence.

Our first rate team of teachers and school staff know each student individually at Arcadia. Their commitment to guiding, understanding and caring for our students assures that your child will learn in a supportive and secure environment.

Being part of Arcadia Public School is being part of a family.  At our school lifelong friendships are forged, families connect and the community grows together.

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.
