Wellbeing & Engagement

Beeac Primary School understand the importance of wellbeing and social and emotional learning for our students.

Beeac Primary School understand the importance of wellbeing and social and emotional learning for our students.

We teach the Respectful Relationships Curriculum and use the Zones of Regulation to support students in developing a positive sense of self, strong social and emotional skills, and an understanding of healthy relationships.

We have a dedicated 1-hour whole school wellbeing session each week. This hour allows students an opportunity to explicitly focus on their mental health and social and emotional learning. At Beeac Primary School, we are committed to providing our students with the tools they need to succeed in life, both academically and emotionally.

Beeac Primary has employed a Mental Health in Primary Schools specialist to lead the promotion of mental health and wellbeing with our school. In addition, we have a Chaplain on site two days per week. Our Chaplain supports our students, staff and parents both in and outside of the classroom.

We know that investing in the social and emotional learning of our students is essential to their success and happiness.

Respectful Relationships

Respectful Relationships promote and model respect and equality. It also supports educators to teach our children how to build healthy relationships, resilience and confidence.

Taking a whole-school approach is about embedding a culture of respect and equality across an entire school community, from our classrooms to staffrooms, sporting fields, school and social events. This approach leads to positive impacts on students’ academic outcomes, mental health, classroom behaviour, and relationships.

Zones of Regulation

The Zones of Regulation develops awareness of feelings, energy and alertness levels while exploring a variety of tools and strategies for regulation, prosocial skills, self-care, and overall wellness. Once we understand our feelings and zones, we can learn to use tools/strategies to manage our different Zones in order to meet goals like doing schoolwork or other tasks, managing big feelings, and healthy relationships with others. The simple, common language and visual structure of The Zones of Regulation helps make the complex skill of regulation more concrete for learners and those who support them.

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club provides children with free, healthy breakfasts. This can lead to increased attendance rates and better conditions for learning, as well as an opportunity to socially connect with peers and make connections with children from other year levels. 

Breakfast Club occurs every day from 8.45am – 8.55am.
