Student resilience and wellbeing are essential for both academic and social development and this is optimised by the provision of a safe, supportive and respectful learning environment.
Not only do confident, resilient children with a capacity for emotional intelligence perform better academically, these skills can also contribute to the creation of strong social bonds and supportive communities, and the maintenance of healthy relationships and responsible lifestyles.
Improving student wellbeing is a priority within our school and community. We support students to develop capabilities which promote health and wellbeing and lead to success in life. We ensure that the school learning environment is supportive and nurturing. We build strong connections to our community.
Victorian government schools are child safe environments. Our schools actively promote the safety and wellbeing of all students, and all school staff are committed to protecting students from abuse or harm in the school environment, in accordance with their legal obligations including child safe standards. All schools have a Child Safety Code of Conduct consistent with the Department’s exemplar available by clicking the link below.
The school implements a whole-school wellbeing plan to embed our school values of Respect, Responsibility, Kindness and Collaboration.
SCHOOL-WIDE POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR SUPPORT
Anglesea Primary School implements the School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) program. SWPBS is a broad range of systemic and individualised strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes in schools while preventing problem behaviour.

The role of lead schools is to lead the way on implementing the whole-school approach to Respectful Relationships, includeing modelling good practice to lead and mentor partner schools. Under the initiative, lead schools receive:
Lead schools will support a cluster of partner schools by providing best-practice advice on implementation strategies and modelling respect and equality.
