St Anne's Primary School Sunbury
At St Anne’s we proclaim, promote and celebrate self worth and the dignity of each person.
'I have come that you may have life and have it to the full.’ (John 10:10)
Student Wellbeing refers to the students’ physical, social and emotional development.
At St. Anne’s, we...
aim to provide a safe, secure, supportive and stimulating environment
foster a culture of positive, tolerant and respectful relationships
recognise, value and respect the uniqueness of each student
believe Student Wellbeing is a whole school approach.
Positive Behaviour for Learning
At St Anne’s we have implemented an evidence based model for behaviour interventions and support. Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) brings together the whole-school community to contribute to developing a positive, safe and supportive learning culture at St Anne’s. The framework assists schools to improve social, emotional, behavioural and academic outcomes for our whole school community.
By focusing on values, students are supported to behave across all settings in a manner that maximises the potential outcomes of each individual, while showing respect for others.
At St Anne's, we value:
Social Emotion Learning
SEL (Social and Emotional Learning) is integrated into all aspects of school life at St Anne’s. Our students are taught and encouraged to use the “Zones of Regulation” to become more aware of and independent in controlling their emotions and impulses, manage their sensory needs and improve their ability to problem solve conflicts. Our students are taught and exposed to many strategies to use, in order to be calm and ready for learning.
To ensure a supportive and safe class ethos, an opportunity to listen and tune into others and build connectedness, Circle Time is used each day at St Anne’s.
Lunch Time Clubs
Lunchtime clubs are an opportunity for students to have fun and interact with peers, including peers from different year levels, who have similar interests and passions.
Our sensory garden at St Anne's has been developed in partnership with the community and Hume City Council. The garden provides an opportunity for students to explore many types of plants, and meet their sensory needs by seeing, touching, smelling, tasting and listening.
