Student health and safety

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

The New South Wales Department of Education recognises that in order to achieve a productive and harmonious school environment, it is necessary to have in place a policy for effective learning and good discipline. The Lindfield East Public School Student Welfare Policy reflects the policy, practices and procedures as outlined in a number of NSW Department of Education documents.

At Lindfield East Public School we are committed to ensuring a safe and happy environment for your child. In line with Department policy, we believe that the provision of a safe working and learning environment for everyone is an integral and essential part of the responsibilities of a school. 

We support your child’s health and safety through a range of strategies including:

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.

We also have a Health and Safety Committee who regularly review our school’s emergency procedures and liaise with the staff to quickly identify and address any potential hazards in the school grounds.

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 leadership

Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.

Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.
