All students at Waverley Meadows Primary School can thrive in a safe and supportive environment with consistent wellbeing practices embedded across the school. We teach social and emotional skills using a philosophy of behaviour education and student self-regulation that fosters independent, self-motivated, empathetic, life-long learners.
Students participate in lessons and activities that promote and develop personal and social competencies. There are five guiding concepts that are embedded through classroom activities and a specific and empowering self-reflective language that helps children to master their behaviour so they can become responsible and capable members of society.
The five guiding key concepts are:
Strong relationships are developed between peers, teachers, and the broader community through participation in many activities through the year that highlight the school’s values, build resilience and develop empathy.

To support our comprehensive wellbeing practices, we also use, participate in or support the following additional programs and initiatives to further enhance our students’ opportunities for social and emotional development.
