At Mortlake Public School we respect diversity and promote the values of fairness and equity. At our school we aim to provide a supportive learning environment through the implementation of a consistent approach to student welfare. Teachers cater for many learning styles and abilities of students and students' special interests and talents are encouraged.

The Student Welfare Policy aims to foster respect and understanding and to develop a safe and happy environment for all members of the school community. The policy has been developed in consultation with students, staff and the community. This policy incorporates six school values and rules related to these values. The classroom rules are displayed throughout the school.
