We see the area of Wellbeing as primarily focused on raising the wellbeing of the whole school community. This prevention practice embraces the safety and connectedness of the whole community. When intervention is required for small groups or individual students, to address either social, behavioural or learning issues, we are able to provide them with valuable assistance through our staff, the Positive Behaviours for Learning team, or our school counsellor.
There are a number of areas that Student Wellbeing encompasses. These include:
- Child Safety
- Behaviour Management – Positive Behaviour for Learning
- Restorative Practices
- Anti-Bullying and Harassment
St Francis Xavier School actively works towards implementing a whole school approach that aims to develop positive behaviour between individuals and therefore positive behaviour for learning (PBL). This process provides everyone with skills and strategies to take responsibility for their choices and actions. It helps them recognise the impact of these actions on others, and encourages them to rebuild broken relationships and move forward.
At St Francis Xavier School the main goal of our Wellbeing program is to develop a supportive learning environment, both in and out of the classroom. We aim to empower all students to develop independence, confidence and resilience, in order to promote positive relationships in all aspects of their lives.
