At Upper Plenty Primary School we aim to provide a safe and secure environment for all. We believe that children's educational, social, emotional, creative and physical development will thrive in a positive and caring environment. We acknowledge that each person's self worth, dignity and potential are of fundamental importance.
Our school believes that welfare is essentially concerned with the rights of each person within the school community. These rights carry with them the acceptance of responsibilites. Together they contribute to the development of self-discipline in our students.
The Student Engagement and Wellbeing Program outlines the basic beliefs, rights and responsibilities, school expectations of behaviour, strategies used to promote appropriate behaviour and the consequences used for dealing with inappropriate behaviour.
The school handbook, developed by the students, staff and community is a core component of our Student Welfare and Discipline Program. It clearly explains what we value, what rules we agree are necessary to look after what we value and the consequences of breaking the rules.
We ask families to discuss the handbook together, revisit it regularly and view its contents as a positive component to ensuring that the health and well being of all children at Upper Plenty Primary School continues to flourish.

Anaphylaxis - Better Health Channel
Anaphylaxis, or anaphylactic shock, is a severe allergic reaction that requires emergency medical attention. Exposure to an allergen, or trigger, can cause immediate and life-threatening symptoms such as breathing difficulties. Treatment involves an injection of adrenaline, usually given with an adrenaline auto-injector device (AAI).
