Students are better prepared for learning when they are healthy, safe and happy, therefore, student welfare is the responsibility of all staff working in a whole school context. Student learning cannot be separated from welfare.
Striving to help students at the college to learn effectively and to develop positive behaviours and attitudes are shared goals of teachers, student support services staff and parents. At Ringwood Secondary College we aim provide an environment which provides for each individual student to maximise their educational potential.
A Student Wellbeing website is being currently created where you will find all the resources and information you will need about our approach to wellbeing at Ringwood Secondary College.
It will be available to view shortly.
