Student support and safety

Student wellbeing

At Jamison High School we know that student resilience and wellbeing are essential for both academic and social development. This is optimised by the provision of safe, supportive and respectful learning environments.

Whole-school wellbeing programs are embedded into the fabric of Jamison High School. Our targeted programs and individualised interventions are designed to build students' capacity for emotional intelligence and resilience. Such skills can also contribute to academic success, the creation of strong social bonds and supportive communities, and the maintenance of healthy relationships and responsible lifestyles.

Universal design for learning (UDL)

 

To promote successful learning of all students in Year 7, Jamison High School has implemented the universal design for learning framework—a set of principles for curriculum development that gives all individuals equal opportunities.  This is applied to all classes to ensure all students are supported in their learning.

Our UDL Coordinator, Ms Slater, works in conjunction with classroom teachers and the learning and support teachers.
