At Holy Family Catholic Primary School everyone has a right to be treated respectfully and to feel safe and secure. All students need an environment that supports their learning, personal growth and positive self-esteem. Successful learning is, to a large extent, dependent on the quality and tone of the learning environment and it is the relationships and trust in the school that have the greatest impact on the quality of this environment. Students will find it challenging to engage with learning programs if they are distracted by significant physical, social or emotional issues. Our student wellbeing policy therefore, is concerned with all that impacts on a student's capacity to learn and to achieve.
