Pastoral Care

At St Paul’s Catholic Parish Primary School Pastoral Care is central to the ethos and identity of our school.

There are many faces of Pastoral Care. It is both explicit and implicit in its expression, however, it is best defined in the expressions of care that bring to wholeness the physical, social, intellectual, emotional and spiritual development of all within the school community.

Above all, St Paul’s Catholic Primary School is a community that creates a cooperative, enthusiastic and supportive environment where each person feels safe, accepted, valued and able to learn in order to reach their potential as persons created in the image of God.

The Pastoral Care Policy has been developed within the context of:

  • Path to Life: A Framework for Pastoral Care and Wellbeing for Systemic Schools in the Diocese of Wollongong. This framework provides clear guidelines that promote Pastoral Care, wellbeing and safe school communities.
  • Managing Student Pastoral and Educational Concerns (MSPEC), a case management tool for pastoral issues, including incidents of bullying
  • Diocesan Learning and Teaching Framework.
  • SPB4L: A framework for school wide positive behaviours for learning
