Pastoral Care and Student Well-Being

St Edmund's draws strength from and recognises that the Gospel values of love, compassion, reconciliation and justice foster an environment which caters to the needs of all members, with those of the students being of primary concern. We recognise and respect the worth of every individual, helping all achieve their potential. We believe that all people should be treated with dignity and respect and that every person's contribution should be accepted, valued and deemed as vital, enhancing the community.

At the core of our Pastoral Care program is recognition of the vital role in fostering relationships of trust, cooperation and partnership between staff and students, other schools and the wider community. Our staff takes a personal interest in all aspects of our students' emotional and educational development, as well as their individual needs and abilities, helping each one to develop a sense of self-worth and to become a contributing member of the community.

While student well-being is a focus for all staff, including Homeroom and subject Teachers, the program is managed by a dedicated Pastoral Care and Student Well-Being Coordinator who is a member of the school Executive Committee. Meetings are held at least weekly to discuss any issues with the running of the program or with individual students.
