Students are respected and valued as individuals with the capacity to learn. These attributes enable students to reflect on their strengths, identify areas they need to work on and gives them the strategies, confidence and resilience to become independent and self-directed learners with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to prepare for lifelong learning.
Rosedale Primary School is fortunate to have a school chaplain as a part of our wellbeing team. The Chaplain at our school is funded through the Australian Governments National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program.
Chaplaincy is a unique service that is of great value to our students, staff and parents, offering care, building the social skills of students, and encouraging responsible behaviour amongst our young people. Our Chaplain works as an integral part of our Wellbeing Team. Together they offer individual support, they plan and implement wellbeing programs across the curriculum and they participate in a broad range of school coordinated activities such as school excursions, camps, sporting events and assemblies. Student engagement in this Program is of a voluntary nature.
School procedures are followed for parents and students to seek referral, manage complaints and opt out of the Program.
Rosedale Primary School also provides a qualified teacher as a Primary Welfare Officer to support students, parents and staff to enhance student well being and engagement, academic achievement and the acquisition of life skills.
Student Support Services Officers are available to provide support to students and families. They include psychologists, guidance officers, speech pathologists and special education consultants.
Comprehensive policies and programs have been developed in the areas of behaviour management, anti-bullying and student welfare, with a strong emphasis on the well-being of all children.
An assertive discipline approach encourages all children to take responsibility for their own behaviour, and is implemented effectively throughout the school with a strong emphasis on recognition and reward of positive behaviours. Our school is a proud recipient of a Silver Award for School Wide Positive Behaviour Support.
