Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Positive education  

At Inner Sydney High School, we use Positive Education as our framework with a focus on restorative principles and practices. Positive relationships and respect between teachers and students is essential to create a productive and harmonious learning environment. We believe that through the fostering of self-regulation inherent within the PERMAH attributes of Positive Education, students are provided with the tools to moderate their own behaviour and reflect high expectations. We believe that all students have the potential to learn and to moderate their own behaviour, and our teacher mentors aid in supporting students on this journey in Touchdown sessions.
