Student Wellbeing

Student Wellbeing

All children should be able to learn in an environment where they feel safe and supported. King’s Student Wellbeing team supports students’ social and emotional welfare by equipping students and their parents with effective strategies, recommendations and tools.

Our team is made up of dedicated teachers and chaplains working across King's two campuses. We work with both students and parents, striving to bring all students from hurt to healing through intervention, support and referrals to external professionals and agencies, where appropriate.

As well as offering pastoral care and support to individuals, we run a number of programs and initiatives throughout the year to benefit the wider student body. These include mentoring and peer support, anger management programs and parenting seminars.

King's Concern
As a school, King's is on a continual journey to be eSmart, where the smart, safe and responsible use of technology is considered normal.

Our student reporting system, King's Concern, enables students to express details of their online concern (eg cyberbullying, suspected illegal online activity) and let someone know before it escalates into something more severe.
