Pastoral Care

Care For The Whole Child

Oxley College aims to provide care for the whole child. This includes the social, emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual wellbeing of each individual.

Wellbeing is the foundation of quality of life and human flourishing. Personal achievement, emotional resilience and social competence are predicated on children feeling safe, challenged, supported and connected to others. Our pastoral care system seeks to achieve this.

At Oxley, all teachers are teachers of wellbeing.

Respect for Self, Respect for Others and Respect for Oxley College

All students and staff at Oxley College have the right to be treated fairly and with dignity in an environment free from physical and verbal disruption, intimidation, harassment, and discrimination.

To achieve this, Oxley College will maintain high standards of student behaviour at all times. Respect for Self, Respect for Others and Respect for Oxley College replaces individual rules and acts as our guide to supporting students under our care.

We understand that from time to time students will make some mistakes. Through our application of Restorative Justice, we aim to assist students in learning from their mistakes, reflecting on the consequences of their actions, developing empathy and modifying their attitudes and behaviour.

Respect for Self, Respect for Others and Respect for Oxley College is also a partnership with parents working together to enable all students to flourish.
