Pastoral Care

All classes are expected to teach Pastoral Care lessons every morning.

What is Pastoral Care? 

Pastoral care is an holistic approach by which the school attempts to meet the personal, social, emotional and intellectual needs of every pupil, in order that each might participate fully and gain maximum benefit from everything the school has to offer.

Pastoral care is the commitment of our staff to the wellbeing of each student.

Effective pastoral care is achieved through promoting positive school environments that support the physical, social, intellectual and emotional development of every student.

Pastoral care is central to the Department’s direction in providing a quality education for all public school students and is embedded within the school system by the provision of safe, inclusive and caring learning environments.

Supporting positive school environments

Effective pastoral care in public schools is underpinned by a positive school climate where:

  • teacher-student relationships are based on trust and mutual respect
  • each student’s physical, social, intellectual and emotional development is promoted
  • there are strong partnerships between the school, parents and community

Pastoral care is achieved through:

  • quality and supportive relationships
  • comprehensive and inclusive approaches to learning
  • effective networks of care
  • appropriate and effective pastoral care strategies
  • supportive and coordinated organisational structures

Pastoral care is shared by and is the responsibility of everyone.
