Wellbeing Team

At Irymple South Primary School we believe that the wellbeing of all students is of paramount importance.

We like our students to feel safe and secure in a positive and stimulating learning environment. We aim at developing a range of values in all our students and provide them with strategies to help cope with daily life experiences. We have a number of support structures in place to assist those in need, and have access to a range of Network staff to assist us with any psychological, social or special needs.

Our dedicated wellbeing staff support families and classroom teachers to plan and respond to the needs of:

Our wellbeing staff can access a variety of services if required, using a tiered model of support.

Tiered Approach to Health and Wellbeing

To ensure our students receive the appropriate level of support, our wellbeing staff plan and deliver all interventions/services in collaboration with families and classroom teachers in a tiered system of support. This approach divides support into three tiers of increasing intensity, organised according to student need.

Response options at each tier help our wellbeing staff consider the range of interventions that can be applied at the whole school level, for specific cohorts and for individual students.
