Student Support Services

Student Support Services

At Trafalgar Primary School, we have programs and support to ensure all children can thrive. Not only do we have quality programs from within our school, we also have many external services that can contribute and support both our students and their families.

Student Support Services is a vital role in supporting our students at their point of need. We ensure we use a broad range of strategies and supports to enable our students to achieve the best possible outcomes.

We have a designated Wellbeing Room where our students can come to chill out, relax and hang out for a chat with staff or peers. This space was designed to be one that students can come to without judgement, and to know someone will be there to talk to if they want to.

We work closely with community organisations and local health practitioners to achieve the best outcomes for our students. We currently have a range of allied health practitioners who attend the school weekly to support interventions for students.

The aim of our Student Wellbeing Program is to provide evidence-based support to students and families so that they can maximise their experience at Trafalgar Primary School.

Respectful Relationships

Everyone in our community deserves to be respected, valued and treated equally. We know that changes in attitudes and behaviours can be achieved when positive attitudes, behaviours and equality are embedded in our education settings.

Respectful Relationships is about embedding a culture of respect and equality across our entire community, from our classrooms to staffrooms, sporting fields, fetes and social events. This approach leads to positive impacts on student’s academic outcomes, their mental health, classroom behaviour, and relationships between teachers and students.

Together, we can lead the way in saying yes to respect and equality and creating genuine and lasting change so that every child can achieve their full potential. ​

The Respectful Relationships Curriculum is mandated in all Victorian classrooms and is a very important part of what we teach at Trafalgar Primary School and include the following topics which are taught every year:

  • Emotional Literacy

  • Personal Strengths

  • Positive Coping

  • Problem Solving

  • Stress Management

  • Help Seeking

  • Gender and Identity

  • Positive Gender Relations

Social Skills

We offer the opportunity for students to participate in small groups to develop social skills or friendship building skills. We know that every child is different and needs support and skill development in different areas, that's why our targeted support is something we pride ourselves on.

These sessions are complementary to the Respectful Relationships Curriculum and include a one weekly, 30 minute targeted learning support. This greatly and quickly improves the social and friendship building skills of our students, and we know these are so important to a happy and successful children at school.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club runs every day from 8.15 am to 8.45 am in the BER building. Once students enter they must remain until 8.45 am.

The Victorian Government has continued its partnership with Foodbank Victoria. Foodbank supports programs that give students the opportunity to eat a wholesome, nutritious breakfast on a regular basis. Having breakfast has been shown to have a positive impact on factors such as physical and mental health, social skills, concentration, behaviour, attendance and academic outcomes.

Our School Breakfast Club aims to ensure that students who may not have had the opportunity to have breakfast before coming to school can still start the day with a healthy meal.
