The Student Health and Wellbeing Policy places a major emphasis on ensuring that all our children have the right to feel safe and secure at school. We stress the need for children to fulfil their responsibilities to work, play and school life. Our policy aims to develop an atmosphere of mutual respect for the rights and feelings of self and others, and to foster cooperation.
Students who need additional support in the area of wellbeing have access to a school counsellor one day per week.
The philosophy of learning support at St Michael’s School is one of supporting student learning within the context of the classroom and providing additional support from the classroom teacher or school officer. This model assists children to work at their level on the concepts being taught within the class context.
