School Psychology Service

Roseworth Primary School has access to the services of a School Psychologist. Our Psychologist is Ms Nadia Truong and she works at our school on Tuesdays and Fridays.

School psychologists help schools meet the social, emotional, learning and behaviour needs of students. Working closely with the school administration, teachers, students and parents, the school psychologist helps schools make improvements that are good for all students, particular groups of students or individual students.

At Roseworth we ask our psychologist to support us in three main areas:

1. Behaviour

  • To work with students, parents and our school to identify and change target behaviours at the individual, group and school level.

2. Learning

  • Conduct assessments of students experiencing learning difficulties and/or disabilities school. 
  • Support our school in making appropriate curriculum adjustments for students in order to enhance their learning outcomes.

3. Mental Health and Well-being

  • Providing direct support for students experiencing mental health and wellbeing difficulties.
  • Assist our school and students to maximise the development of positive mental health and well-being.

Accessing the School Psychologist

To access the services of our school psychologist there is a system to follow.  All referrals to the school psychologists are managed by the school administration.  Parents are requested to discuss any issues directly with their child's classroom teacher who will refer the request on to the administration team.  Alternatively parents may approach members of the administration team directly.

Due to the limited amount of access our school has to a school psychologist on site, there is a need to determine eligibility and priority in all cases referred.
