Wellbeing & Engagement

School Wide Positive Behaviour (SWPBS) 

Wilmot Road is a SWPBS school.  SWPBS is a whole school framework for establishing the social culture and individualised supports needed for all students to achieve both social and academic success.  Similar to learning any curriculum, students need to be explicitly positive behaviours that are adopted across our entire school with the aim of setting clear, consistent expectations and positive values. 





Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships Curriculum 

This program provides comprehensive lesson plans for all levels of schooling to support the topics of emotional literacy, personal strengths, positive coping, problem-solving, stress management, help-seeking and positive relationships.





Smiling Mind  

Smiling Mind is Australia's leading, prevention focussed mental health curriculumSmiling Mind is series of modern meditation activities, teaching students strategies to look after their mental wellbeing.  It's been developed to complement existing mental health and wellbeing programs, complements the Personal and Social Capabilities in the Victorian Curriculum. 


Sensory Motor Program 

Wilmot Road Primary School designed and implemented a nationally recognised whole school Sensory Motor Program and sensory diets to assist children with sensory processing difficulties. 

A sensory diet is a series of structured activities that provide the sensory input a child needs to remain focussed in class.  The breaks occur at specific times throughout the day and act as a proactive and preventative measure to support children. 

The program is aligned to the research of Daimant (2021) Fraser, Mackenzie and Versnel (2017) who found that "regular, targeted sensory diets enable children to learn, develop friendship groups and regulate impulsive behaviours". 

Education Support staff have received professional development on sensory processing and implement the student diets.  The Occupational Therapist and Assistant Principal monitor the diets within the school. 

The school has built a purpose-built sensory room supported by The Zones of Regulation curriculum (designed by Leah M. Kuypers and supported by Dr Bruce Perry) and created a sustainable indoor-outdoor sensory space, classroom Sensory Tool Kits and ongoing staff capacity building.
