We provide an outstanding wellbeing program. Our door is always open and the school is known for the support that it provides families.

Teachers are skilled at catering for individual needs and know families well. Our staff implement trauma informed practice using the Berry Street Education Model for a “wrap around approach”, supporting students to achieve goals with attendance, positive growth mindset, tracking their behaviour and social skill development.

Our student wellbeing leader, Mrs Chris Layley is able to provide additional expert social and emotional support. She also has access to services such as speech pathologists and psychologists for students who need additional help.  Our wellbeing program is supported through Chaplaincy funding courtesy of the Salvation Army who also provide access to a Family Counsellor.


We are a Respectful Relationship partner school and abide by the following child safe standards.

St. Leonards Primary School is a child-safe place! We have seven standards to prove it.

Standard 1: Child safety is everything to us. A school without safe children is no school at all

Standard 2: We walk the talk.

Standard 3: We have a code of conduct that all adults working here have signed.

Standard 4: We carefully choose the best staff, we train them well and we keep bettering ourselves to keep your children safe.

Standard 5: If something goes wrong, we will respond quickly to help students.

Standard 6: We keep looking around to minimise and prevent any risks to your safety.

Standard 7: We teach students ways to grow and thrive and improve in their learning and relationships with others. We believe in the importance of student voice. Everyone has a say!
