Student Wellbeing

The emotional and physical wellbeing of our students is vital to their success at school. Physically and emotionally healthy students are happy, able to deal positively with life’s challenges, experience a sense of connectedness with the school and others, and are well placed to develop into well-balanced and successful young adults.


At Hurstbridge Primary, we use School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS). SWPBS is a whole-school framework which promotes improved behaviour at our school. SWPBS has been developed from evidence and data, demonstrating the most effective ways to prevent and respond to problem behaviour at school. Research has shown that SWPBS is successful in reducing problem behaviour, improving school culture, and increasing academic performance.

In conjunction with this we implement the Respectful Relationships program throughout our school community. Respectful Relationships promotes and models respect, positive attitudes and behaviours. It teaches our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence.


Hurstbridge Primary has a range of highly skilled people to coordinate and implement highly valuable Support programs for students. Below is a list of the Support Services provided:
