Student Wellbeing

Looking After Students

Hagley College is dedicated to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for our students to succeed.

Our goal is to enhance students’ sense of wellbeing so that they flourish at and beyond Hagley College

How we do that:

  • We promote Hagley as a place where students feel comfortable and a sense of belonging
  • We have a Wellbeing team of Tutors, Deans, a Director of the Junior College and Year 11 led by a Deputy Principal – Student Wellbeing who ensure every student is supported and cared for
  • Our teaching staff use positive strategies to encourage students to achieve success in learning.
  • We operate open lines of communication between the College and our parents
  • We promote the school values of respect, personal responsibility, trust and integrity.
  • We provide a guidance service to meet the individual needs of students seeking more wellbeing support. This may be individual consultations or group work.
  • We provide a careers service for all students, when considering their future. This can include support preparing a CV, experiencing a short vocational course or job seeking techniques.
  • We actively seek student voice around wellbeing and act on this data.
  • We continue to link with agencies that can offer additional support to our students and their families.
