The School Psychologist provides a specialist psychological assessment, intervention and consultation service. She works at the individual, group, whole school and system levels. The School Psychologist provides support in three main areas:
- Behaviour – working with students, parents and the school to identify and change target student behaviours
- Learning – conducting assessments of students experiencing learning difficulties and/or disabilities at school to support teachers to make appropriate curriculum adjustments for students in order to enhance their learning outcomes
- Mental Health and Wellbeing – providing direct support for students experiencing mental health and wellbeing difficulties and assist the school and children to maximise the development of positive mental health and well-being
The School Psychologist visits the school each week for the purpose of assisting teachers in the planning of programs for children with particular educational needs. If parents have concerns regarding their child, please speak to one of the Deputy Principals who will then refer you to the School Psychologist if appropriate. Parent permission will be sought before referring students to the School Psychologist.
