KidsMatter & Wellbeing


Norwood Primary is a culturally diverse school. Diversity is celebrated by actively practicing and promoting dignity, respect and inclusiveness. All students are provided with a supportive and welcoming environment, where they are able to stretch their thinking and learning to achieve success. Norwood Primary aims to meet the learning, social and wellbeing needs of all students and their families. Positive relationships between families and the school community convey respect for diversity and strengthen children’s mental health and wellbeing. Norwood Primary aims to build a community which is positive, inclusive and resilient – where every child, young person, staff member and family can achieve their best possible mental health.

Norwood Primary School is dedicated to building a positive community; one that is founded on respectful relationships and a sense of belonging and inclusion, promoting:

  • social and emotional learning (including evidence-based social and emotional learning programs)
  • working authentically with parents, carers and families
  • support for students who may be experiencing mental health difficulties.

Norwood Primary School is continuing to work with families to support students’ mental health and wellbeing by providing a range of programs and facilities, including the KidsMatter Corner. Staff at Norwood Primary School utilise the NPS Wellbeing Framework to promote the wellbeing and resilience of all students.
