Student health and safety

We are committed to ensuring a safe and happy environment for your child.

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.

Student Wellbeing

Student Wellbeing at Bossley is coordinated by the Student Wellbeing Team, comprised of the Year Advisers, School Counsellors, Careers Adviser and Head Teacher Student Wellbeing, in consultation with the Deputy Principals and Principal. The Student Wellbeing Team support the learning needs and wellbeing of all students at BPHS. The Year Adviser is the first point of contact for parents when they have a query about an issue or when they need to notify the school of home issues.  Any concerns you might have in the classroom or the playground in relation to your child should be referred to the Year Adviser.

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.
