Student Well BeingThe atmosphere of care here at St Andrew’s is positive and inclusive. By working together as a community to meet the ethos of our College our students flourish within a motivated and dynamic expression of holistic education. We assist our students to form connections within our community which enables them to reach their personal best across all dimensions of their lives.
Staff, students, parents and the wider community are utilised as resources to enhance the vision and spirit of the philosophy of all aspects of pastoral care here at the College.
Pastoral Care can not be restricted to a particular program or curriculum and various elements of student well-being operate within our community. The delivery of pastoral care is primarily proactive in order to provide support, guidance and education for students with the onus of responsibility upon each member of the school community, for the well-being of others.
Student Well Being lessons are conducted for the Middle Years and Senior Years students.
Other student support structures, policies and staff include:
- Student Records and References
- Student Support Information
- Student Well Being lessons (Years 7-12)
- Interviews and Guidance
- Academic Monitoring List
- Academic Reviews
- Learning Services
- Seasons for Growth

ROLES AND DUTIES OF SPECIFIC PASTORAL CARE STAFF IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOL
In the Student Services Office our staff facilitates the checking of attendance and communication of routine school notices. The staff responsible for this system also provide an opportunity for close supervision of all aspects of a student's personal and academic development during his or her years at the school. In the first instance all students, parents and staff should make contact with the administration staff located in H block for assistance with all student welfare enquiries. Enquiries will be answered where possible or redirected to the most appropriate staff member to ensure efficiency in communication and advocating for student needs.
The Home Room Teacher
The student should find that their Home Room Teacher is their greatest friend and helper at the College. The Home Room Teacher will get to know the student and their parents so well that he or she can be very ready to assist their group of students with personal or academic issues, concerns and guidance.
The Home Room Teacher bears the primary responsibility for the academic progress, general development and welfare of each secondary school student within his or her Home Group. The Home Room Teacher is responsible for monitoring uniforms and student diaries of their students and for the upkeep of their Home Room and Home Room Roll. The Home Room Roll is a legal document. The Home Room Teacher is responsible for the students in their group during allocated times. The Home Room Teacher will be the first point of contact between secondary school parents and the school and will ensure that when appropriate, Heads of House and senior administration staff are made aware of problems relating to particular students.
The Home Room Teacher is responsible for the maintenance and updating of academic attendance and general student records.
The arrangement of pastoral care groups at St Andrew’s Anglican College provides for:
- Each student to meet each day with a stable group of students from Years 7-12 and the teacher of their Home Room group.
- The same Home Room Teacher stays with the same Home Room group where possible throughout secondary school years.
