Student Support & Intervention

At Thornhill Park Primary School, we have programs and support to ensure all children can thrive.

Our wellbeing team support our students at their point of need. We ensure we use a broad range of strategies and supports to enable our students to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Everyone in our community deserves to be respected, valued and treated equally. We know that changes in attitudes and behaviours can be achieved when positive attitudes, behaviours and equality are embedded in our education settings.

Respectful Relationships is about embedding a culture of respect and equality across our entire community, from our classrooms to staffrooms, sporting fields, fetes and social events. This approach leads to positive impacts on student’s academic outcomes, their mental health, classroom behaviour, and relationships between teachers and students.

Together, we can lead the way in saying yes to respect and equality and creating genuine and lasting change so that every child can achieve their full potential. ​

The Respectful Relationships Curriculum is mandated in all Victorian classrooms and is a very important part of what we teach at Thornhill Park Primary School and include the following topics which are taught every year:

  • Emotional Literacy
  • Personal Strengths
  • Positive Coping
  • Problem Solving
  • Stress Management
  • Help Seeking
  • Gender and Identity
  • Positive Gender Relations

We offer the opportunity for students to participate in small groups to develop social skills or friendship building skills.

Parents/carers have the opportunity to discuss the learning needs of their children at regular teacher meetings and discuss how the home/school relationship can be enhanced.

Our dedicated wellbeing space promotes the healthy development of children’s emotional self-regulation, particularly for students whose needs may not easily be met in the classroom environment. Our approach is to ensure all students, whatever challenges they are facing, are fully integrated into the classroom, maintaining a climate of inclusion for all students.

The Wellbeing space is a great space to build and maintain self-regulation strategies, support the sensory needs of our students and to promote the social and emotional development and wellbeing of our students.
