Student health and safety

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

Anti-Bullying Policy

Dulwich High School of Visual Arts and Design strives to provide a quality education for all students. At our school, we focus on three aspects– respect, responsibility and relationships. Any inappropriate behaviour such as bullying, which gets in the way of teaching and learning at our school and interferes with the welfare of students, will not be tolerated.

Every student of this school has a right to be educated in an environment free from harassment, bullying and violence. As such the Anti-Bullying Policy is integral to the school's Welfare and Behaviour Management Policy.

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

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.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) – 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.

Student leadership

Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.

Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.
