Wellbeing for Learning

‘Teaching children, not subjects’

When we focus on wellbeing for learning we acknowledge that we are teaching children, not subjects.

We prioritise wellbeing with the knowledge that without wellbeing, children are not able to effectively engage in their learning.

Wellbeing at Athelstone School is developed through our partnership with families to develop a culture based on core values, that is supported by a positive learning environment and well implemented policies and practices.

Our Wellbeing Hub consists of our Student Wellbeing Leader, Dave Remfry, our pastoral care worker, Karin Williams and a mental health social worker from Grow Wellbeing, Elmien Britz.

We also support families by providing spaces for external providers (speech and occupational therapists) to work with their children.

A proactive approach to wellbeing is being implemented through our positive behaviour policy, restorative practices, the Resilience Project (from 2024) and the positive body image program Butterfly Body Bright.
