Pastoral Care

Student wellbeing at our school is a collaborative partnership between all staff, the family and the school and parish community.

Be You

St Kevin’s is a Be You school in which student wellbeing is at the forefront of all that we do.

The framework for our student wellbeing program provides a flexible, whole-school approach to improving student's mental health and wellbeing by:

  • Creating positive school communities founded on respectful relationships and a sense of belonging and inclusion
  • Teaching students skills for good social and emotional development
  • Working together with families
  • Recognising and getting help for students with mental health problems.

Growth Mindset

“In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work - brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment” (Dweck, 2015).

At St Kevin’s, we believe every student can and will learn.

  • We acknowledge the importance of planning, taking on challenges, failing and trying new approaches
  • We help students to set personal learning goals
  • We encourage the use of positive language around learning, making mistakes, failure and collaboration.
