Student Wellbeing

Student Support

Children’s social emotional development is supported at St James in a variety of ways:

  • Student Support Team Meetings when teachers meet with support role holders to discuss individual children’s needs;
  • Planning meetings with support role holders, teachers and parents of children with diverse learning needs;
  • The implementation of the Bounce Back Program targeting and supporting the development of resilience amongst the students of St James.
  • The acknowledgement and celebration of the Child of the week;
  • Access to the School Guidance Counsellor for students and families as required.

Behaviour Support

A school wide behaviour plan is in place that sets out and clearly articulates expectations of behaviour with clear steps to be followed when behaviour is not maintained. Communication is made to parents when a child has been challenged due to their behaviour or when they have been involved in mediation or have been the victim of bullying.​
