Student Wellbeing

Student Wellbeing is one of our priorities at Montpellier Primary School, and our school curriculum incorporates positive education, Respectful Relationships and a range of programs, such as Body Bright body image education and smiling mind to ensure that our students feel safe and connected to school and the wider community.


We are part of the Mental Health In Primary Schools Program for 2024.


Montpellier Primary School takes a proactive approach to wellbeing through the embedding of evidence-based strategies, interventions and programs throughout the school.

  • Building the capability of the whole school regarding mental health and wellbeing
  • Supporting the whole school to better identify and support students with mental health needs of their students
  • Establishing clear referral pathways for students requiring assessment, intervention, and monitor and evaluate student progress. 


Sam works Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays and referral to our wellbeing leader is via the classroom teacher.
