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.

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.

Our school offers all Year 6 students membership to the School Parliament. School parliaments provide an opportunity for students to participate in the running of their primary school and are a vehicle for them to express their opinions and participate actively in decision making. The first Floraville School Parliament was opened in 2004. It came into being to provide opportunities for student leadership within the school which was both effective in the short term and helped to prepare students for real life citizenship.

 School Parliament meets every second Friday. During that time the Ministers deliver their reports, the Class Representatives present the issues raised by the classes they visit and motions are presented to the Parliament for consideration and debate. Motions which are presented at School Parliament must have the approval of a class teacher. Vigorous discussions follow the tabling of a motion and if successful they are taken to Mr Robson for further consideration. This process is designed to complement and consolidate all students understanding of the processes involved in Parliamentary debate.
