Our Student Services Team at Bicton Primary School consists of our Principal, Deputy Principals, School Psychologist and Chaplain. The team works closely together to help support the students, parents and staff needs. Our Teachers and Education Assistants also play an important role in the implementation of Students Support.
Bicton Primary School has a School Psychologist once a week which has been allocated to us from the Department of Education.
The School psychologists plays a key role in supporting students, parents, teachers and school administrators in a wide range of areas.
This extends from mental health issues to complex behaviour, learning difficulties and disability, and emergency and critical incident management.
Schools are diverse, which means our students and their needs vary considerably, and our school psychologist has the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of many of our students.
Bicton Primary School is part of the YouthCare Chaplaincy Program. Two days a week our Chaplain Mr Stuart Smith is at our school to help provide support to our students.
Each year YouthCARE help thousands of students, staff and family members in Western Australian public school communities by providing an essential social, emotional and mental health support service.
YouthCARE chaplains are there to listen, and provide a supportive place to talk. They offer confidential, non-judgmental pastoral care and programs based on respect, compassion and service. YouthCARE chaplains are trained in pastoral care, with ongoing training opportunities provided to specialise in critical incidences, community members living in isolation and mental health initiatives.
The Chaplains aim is to support young people and their communities who may be facing challenging personal and social issues. They listen, understand and refer to extra help, if it’s appropriate.
YouthCARE Chaplains are placed according to an individual schools needs after undergoing a rigorous application process including qualification assessments, interviews, reference checks and internationally recognised vocational psychological screening.
Bicton Primary School participates in the EDConnect Volunteer program. Our students are fortunate to work with these volunteers on a one-to-one basis supporting student health and wellbeing.
They enhance and enrich the community by enabling people of all ages to help each other. They provide support so that everyone has the opportunity to realise their potential – in school, in life, in society.
