Our Heads of Grade (Early and Primary Years) and Pastoral Leaders (Secondary Years) provide additional support and case management for our student body. This level of support will focus primarily on low-level social-emotional challenges whereby the Heads of Grade and/or Pastoral Leader will engage with key stakeholders, student, parent and teacher/s to employ a multidisciplinary approach (where appropriate) focused on meeting the needs of the student. Some examples of low-level social-emotional challenges as relational difficulties, student mediation, lack of engagement/attendance, low self-worth/confidence, low resilience, and personal health/hygiene.
We have also implemented a Mentor Program with a group of Grade 11 and 12 students. Mentors offer peer support to students, enhance the transition support for new students and inspire other students to ‘pay it forward’.
This tiered approach ensures that students and their families are provided with numerous levels of support available to them at any time.
