We commit to providing safe and supportive environments which nurture the wellbeing of all students and staff in our community, and hold firmly to the belief that they have a right to be safe, respected and valued in an inclusive environment. We know that when students are happy, they are more engaged with their learning.

Schools benefit from wellbeing initiatives and pastoral care support through Sydney Catholic Schools – in areas such as anti-bullying, positive behaviour, student counselling, refugee support and child protection – which range from universal support for all students, to targeted interventions for students with complex social and emotional needs.

St Ambrose Catholic Primary School is committed to nurturing a positive, safe and supportive learning culture. Our community fosters the development of individuals who are empathetic, responsible and resilient. 

Proactive approaches to wellbeing are embedded through policies, explicit teaching, local student led initiatives, and the support of our CatholicCare counsellor. Emphasis is placed on the development of the spiritual, academic, emotional and physical needs of each student with maximising personal growth and self esteem a priority.

If your child is experiencing bullying of any kind, or you have a wellbeing concern, we have a number of support services available for parents/carers and students, as listed below.
