Wellbeing Programs

Our well-being approach at Brocklesby PS

Brocklesby Public School’s commitment to building strong relationships between staff, students and their families is aimed at fostering a culture of mutual respect and understanding.  At the start of each year, classes develop understandings that help them to collaboratively build a safe and supportive classroom environment.  Social skills and values are regularly discussed and reflected upon throughout the year both within classes and as a whole school.

A one hour timetabled social-emotional learning class is timetabled across the school from Kindergarten-Year 6.  Our school draws on both the 'Be You' program to explicitly teach the 5 keys to success: Confidence, Getting Along, Persistence, Organisation and Resilience and the Bounce Back resource to foster the learning, resilience and well-being of our children.  The Bounce Back resource provides an evidence based approach to developing personal and social capabilities, including self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and social management.

Our approaches support students to develop socially, emotionally and academically; supporting them to reach their potential as learners and to make positive choices that allow them to achieve their aspirations and contribute to our broader community.
