Pastoral Support Services:
Student Pastoral care is an essential and integral part of the daily life of our school. It is a partnership between parents/caregivers, families, community agencies and the school to foster personal growth amongst the students.
Promotion of the Restorative Practice:
By using the PB4L (positive behaviour for learning) model to restore relationships that are broken in a just and caring manner.
Our student services result in:
·Promoting a positive learning environment where students are enthusiastic to come to school to learn and participate fully
·Encouraging students to become responsible for their own education and all the curriculum activities related to this process
·Supporting the students to participate in co-curricular activities and recognizing and celebrating their achievements
·Developing leadership among our students where they can show initiative, make decisions, and respond positively.
We care about our students, and we support their wellbeing and safety by providing a network of teaching and support staff that offer educational, emotional and pastoral support.
Our curriculum is vibrant and strengths-based for maximum engagement, with a strong focus on tools for lifelong success and love for learning.
