The St. Francis Xavier’s School community endeavours to exercise pastoral care for each and every child, parent and staff member.
All school behaviour management practices aim to develop in our students, self-discipline and a respect for self and others. A high, but fair standard of behaviour is expected at all times.
We emphasise the importance of the development of the whole person and the implementation of behaviour management strategies which promote the dignity of all.
In accordance with our Mission Statement, we aim to develop responsible Australians who consciously attempt to live the gospel values in their everyday relationships with others, so that these evidence “forgiveness, acceptance, justice, self -discipline, friendship, respect and care.” As an Authentic Catholic school, our St Francis Xavier’s School community recognises that each student is entitled to a socially just education where they are able to achieve their full potential, in an environment that is characterised by:-
- an ethos centred on the person of Jesus and the values exemplified in the gospel
- an emphasis on the development of high quality interpersonal relationships
- a curriculum that caters for all learners
- a high level of co-operation and collaboration amongst staff, parents and students
- non-discriminatory organisational and administrative procedures
- regular opportunities for the monitoring and review of school practices, policies, plans and procedures and
- a clearly stated, and consistently implemented, school behaviour management plan which encourages students to make choices and accept responsibility for their own behaviour
