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:

For more information, visit the student wellbeing section of the department’s website.

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.

Student health care needs 

At the time of enrolment and following major changes in health care needs, we will work closely with you to identify any special health and well-being issues that may impact on your child.  All students are entitled to participate in education regardless of their health support needs. While a student's health support rests primarily with the parent, school staff have a duty to keep students safe while they are at school or are involved in school activities.

When students need help with health issues at school, parents may need to consult with their medical practitioner about the implications of the child's health condition for their schooling and any actions that need to occur during the school day. Parents need to convey relevant information from the medical practitioner to the principal in writing.

Schools undertake collaborative individual health care planning to determine the best way for the individual health support needs to be met. This may require the principal to seek additional support from the department so that appropriate arrangements can be made for the student's participation at school.

A written Health Care Plan will be developed for all students who have specific health related needs.  An individual health care plan formalises the support for students with complex health care needs.  

We may ask for additional advice and documentation from your child’s team of health care professionals to ensure appropriate plans are in place. In complex health care management we work collaboratively with allied health care teams such as dieticians, speech pathologists, psychologists, paediatricians, occupational therapists or case managers.

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.

Chaplaincy Program

Bullimbal School has been supported through the National Schools Chaplaincy Program provision of a School Chaplain that is shared with Parry School for Specific Purposes. This program supports the wellbeing of students and school communities through the provision of pastoral care services and strategies delivered by chaplains. An recent independent evaluation of the National Schools Chaplaincy Program found it to be highly effective in boosting student wellbeing.
