Student health and safety

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

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.

As a special school for students with mental health and behavioural difficulties, it is our responsibility to prioritise our staff and students' safety. Fowler Road School obligates under Occupational Health and Safety (pdf, 85KB) act, and fulfil our duties to provide the safest environment to staff and students. 

The use of legal drugs such as medications, is very common among our students. For this reason, we provide an informative drug education (pdf, 23KB) to all our students.  

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 allow them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Our school complies with child protection (pdf, 28KB) guidelines to ensure and maintain an appropriate, sexually, physically and psychologically safe relationships with students at all times.  

Transition plan

Transition to high school (PDF 22KB) is difficult, yet a very important aspect in a student's life. We ensure our students are focused and prepared for this transition from Year 6. 

We help our students be part of Workplace learning programs (PDF 156KB) where they can work under an employer when they turn 14. This is an important part of the transition plan.  

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.

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.
