Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Student welfare

Student Welfare is the concern of every member of staff at Gosford High School. In its widest context, it covers the safety of all students in our care, their emotional, social and intellectual wellbeing and their conduct and behaviour. We believe in educating our students holistically and their development into functioning, engaging and positive young adults is of primary consideration to all programs we offer.

At Gosford High School, we pride ourselves on our diversity. We strive to teach our students how to celebrate and learn from difference, for their own benefit and for the vitality of our wider community.

We believe equity and equal opportunity are crucial within education and demonstrate a commitment to racial, cultural, gender and sexual diversity. By promoting respect, tolerance and curiosity, we strive to make Gosford High School a safe haven for all students where they are free to be themselves.

Our school environment welcomes and respects people from all backgrounds. We work with you to provide a safe and caring learning environment for your child and also keep informed about support for school families.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.
