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 allow them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Ban on knives

The Department of Education has issued a temporary ban on students, staff and visitors carrying any form of knife to government schools. This temporary ban is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of students and staff at all of our school sites. Read the Ban on knives (PDF 180KB) statement for further information.

Mobile phones and electronic devices

Mobile phone use in schools can impact student learning and wellbeing. Restricting mobile phone use at school aims to increase focus in classrooms, remove distractions and promote positive social interaction, while reducing the potential for online bullying. NSW School of Languages follows the “Off and Away” management option for mobile phones. Refer to the Mobile Phones and Electronic Devices Guidelines (PDF 217KB) for our procedures.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) – 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.
