Introduction

At St Catherine’s we believe that the social, emotional, moral, spiritual and physical wellbeing of our students is pivotal to student health, safety, learning and success.

We aim to provide an educational environment which recognises, values and builds student wellbeing.


Informed by social justice, we promote and foster inclusion, engagement, connectedness and belonging
in our students, whilst developing strong relationships with parents and the broader community. We
encourage empathy towards the feelings of others, the development of problem solving skills and respect
for the rights of all.

Under the umbrella of student wellbeing resides the student services area which supports our students in
areas of literacy, numeracy and special needs. We promote a whole-school approach by addressing the
modes of prevention and opportunities for growth and early intervention specifically. These are also supported
with the welfare modes of intervention and recovery.
