Tweedsmuir Public School 

2024-2025 Safe and Inclusive School Planlearning triangle

Our school is committed to providing all students with a safe, caring, and inclusive learning environment free from bullying and harassment that promotes respect, acceptance, and empathy.

Staff, students, parents and caregivers, and community partners will work together as a team to help make our school safe and welcoming for everyone.

The Safe and Inclusive School Plan highlights some of the key actions that our school community will put in place as part of our bullying prevention and intervention efforts.

Key Priorities and Goals

This year we are focusing on promoting student mental health and well-being with a specific focus on fostering an inclusive and engaging school environment, free from bullying and harassment.

We are doing this to support healthy, resilient and positive learners in our Tweedsmuir school community.

Key Actions or Strategies

  • Create and uphold class agreements to ensure every student feels respected, supported, affirmed, and free from harm. Utilize community circles and character trait assemblies to reinforce these values, while providing more practice and modeling for conflict resolution and positive relationships.
  • Prioritize mental health support by creating an environment that nurtures emotional wellbeing and includes the essential conditions for learning. Regularly remind students of their classroom agreements and the importance of honouring their commitments
  • Build a sense of community and Tweedsmuir pride through character education, conflict resolution, restorative practices, and fostering positive relationships. Promote school spirit and develop a collaborative environment to strengthen community bonds among students, families, and staff.

Community and Home Connections

  • Ask your child about each day, about an act of kindness or how they helped a friend.
  • Try having a conversation with your child about maintaining healthy relationships with friends.
