KidsMatter

KidsMatter Primary is a mental health and wellbeing framework for primary schools and is proven to make a positive difference to the lives of Australian children. The framework provides proven methods, tools and support to help schools work with parents and carers, health services and the wider community, to nurture happy, balanced kids.

KidsMatter Primary is a flexible, whole-school approach to improving children's mental health and wellbeing for primary schools. It is tailored to our own local needs.

Through KidsMatter Primary, WPS has committed to undertaking a two-to-three year cyclical process in which we plan and take action to be a positive community; one that is founded on respectful relationships and a sense of belonging and inclusion; and that promotes:

  • social and emotional learning (including evidence-based social and emotional learning programs)
  • working authentically with parents, carers and families
  • support for students who may be experiencing mental health difficulties.

By taking on KidsMatter, WPS is building on the work that we are already doing in these areas.
