Nhulunbuy Primary School is committed to the Kids Matter framework when it comes to student wellbeing. Kids Matter is a mental health and wellbeing framework for primary schools. The framework is a flexible, whole school approach to improving children’s mental health and wellbeing. Kids Matter is founded on respectful relationships and a sense of belonging and inclusion through social and emotional learning, working authentically with parents, carers and families and support for students experiencing mental health difficulties.
KidsMatter was developed in collaboration with the Australian Government Department of Hea lth and Ageing, beyondblue, the Australian Psychological Society, the Principals Australia Institute, and Early Childhood Australia.
Nhulunbuy Primary School has established a Kids Matter Action Team to lead and coordinate the framework.
