Student health and safety

We are committed to ensuring a safe and happy environment for your child.

We support your child’s health and safety through a range of strategies including:

For more information, visit the student wellbeing section of the department’s website.

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.

Wet weather

On wet days, three consecutive chimes are played at 8:55am or at any time after that. When this happens, students are to go directly to classrooms. If it is raining at lunch or fruit break, students are supervised in the classrooms.

Administration of Medication

We would like to remind parents on the importance of providing the school with detailed information and written authorisation to administer medication.

When a medical practitioner has prescribed medication that must be administered during the school day, parents/carers must:

  • notify the school
  • provide up to date information as required
  • supply the medication and any 'consumables' necessary for its administration in a timely way.

Parents/carers of children who require prescribed medication to be administered at school must complete a written request form. Students must not carry medications unless there is a written agreement between the school and the student's parents/carers.

If your child requires any medication to be administered at school, please complete the medication request form and return it to the office with the medication.

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.

Drummoyne Public School has a Student Representative Council (SRC) which meets regularly. Each class elects two representatives, to take their concerns to the council for discussion. A member of staff supervises, directs and organises the SRC. Prefects are elected from within the Year 6 student body. Prefects uphold and demonstrate the school values, as detailed in the "Our School" section.
