Kids Matter

Coonamble Public School is implementing the KidsMatter Primary initiative. KidsMatter Primary is a flexi-ble, whole-school approach to improving children's mental health and wellbeing for primary schools. It can be tailored to schools' local needs.


Through KidsMatter Primary, CPS will undertake a two-to three-year cyclical process in which they plan and take action to be a positive community; one that is founded on respectful relationships and a sense of belonging and inclusion,  and that promotes:

•             social and emotional learning (including evidence-based social and emotional learning programs)

•             working authentically with parents, carers and families

•             support for students who may be experiencing mental health difficulties.



KidsMatter Primary is structured into four components to allow for a management progression in improv-ing student's mental health and wellbeing. The four components are as follows;

1.            Positive school community

2.            Social and emotional learning for students

3.            Working with parents and carers

4.            Helping children with mental health difficulties
