School counselling service

School counselling staff are members of the school learning and support team.

A teacher may recommend the service by referring a student to the school’s learning and support team. As a parent or carer, you may refer your child directly to the school counselling service. Students can also self-refer to the service.

The school counselling service can:

  • support students who are worrying about school work, friends, getting in trouble at school or feeling down
  • help parents and carers make decisions about your child’s education
  • assess a student’s learning and behaviour
  • help teachers and students identify and address disabilities that may affect learning
  • liaise with other agencies regarding student wellbeing.

School counselling is confidential.

For more information about learning and support teams and the school counselling service, please contact your school.

Schools are required to provide a protective and caring school environment that ensures student safety, welfare and wellbeing.

Staff are aware of the indicators of abuse and neglect of children and young people, their obligations to advise the principal of any concerns about their safety, welfare and wellbeing, and the mandatory obligation to report suspected risk of significant harm and the procedures for doing so.
  • establish workplace systems for coordinating services for families and children in ways that strengthen and support them and exchanging information with other agencies as permitted by law
  • escalate concerns if serious safety issues remain after a report has been made
  • continue to support and promote the safety of the child or young person who is the subject of concerns
  • comply with record-keeping requirements, including staff completion of induction and annual updates, and reports to the Helpline.
