Student wellbeing

We are a Be You school and aim to be a positive community which is founded on respectful relationships and a sense of belonging and inclusion.

Teaching social and emotional skills is an important part of our curriculum. We offer programs to develop each student’s capacity to fulfil their own potential and contribute positively to their family and community now and in the future. We use the following programs and strategies to help students develop self-regulation, motivation, respect, empathy, confidence, cooperation, resilience and social skills:

  • Play is the Way social skills program
  • Keeping Safe Child Protection Curriculum
  • Student leadership opportunities such as Voice of Kids (VoK), house captains and senior leaders
  • Cyber Safety sessions run by SAPOL
  • Breakfast Club (every Wednesday 8.15-8.45 am)

We also have specially trained staff who support our students and their families:

  • Deputy Principal with a focus on student wellbeing and inclusion
  • Aboriginal Community Education Officer
  • Pastoral Care Worker

Holiday support – the importance of wellbeing

Maintaining mental health during the holidays may be a challenge for some families. Encourage children to manage their stress levels by using positive self-talk, exercise, healthy eating, connection with their friends, and finding ways to enjoy themselves. To help support families to keep safe, resilient and well, we have compiled the following list of resources:


If you need to talk to someone about your mental health urgently, call Lifeline on 13 11 14.


And if you are worried about your child’s online safety go to the eSafety commissioner website:

The Education Department


We, at Ascot Park Primary School, acknowledge that the land on which we work, learn and play is the traditional land of the Kaurna People. We pay our respects to Elders past and present, and to the young leaders of tomorrow. We recognise their ongoing connection to Country and in the spirit of reconciliation, we will take action to respect the animals, lands, waters and cultural beliefs of our First Nations Peoples.
