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 Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.

Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) is an evidence-based whole school process to improve learning outcomes for all students.

At Metella Road Public School there are four universal expectations. These

stem from the school's acronym:


Students are expected to uphold these expectations in the classroom and playground. Weekly lessons are explicitly taught by classroom teachers to ensure that students have a clear understanding of how these values can be incorporated into their daily school life.

Teachers deliver consistent responses to student learning and behaviour. Students respond positively as they have been taught what is expected of them.

We have a focus of the fortnight on our four core values; Motivated, Respectful, Proud and Safe. This reminds students of our expectations which promotes Positive Behaviour for Learning.
