Our Vision

 

 

Sacred Heart School Philosophy

 

Our philosophy is enacted through our teaching and care for students. We aim to provide a school community that draw on the traditions of the Josephite Order, that celebrates life, reaches out to others and actively cares for our world. Our philosophy guides our teaching, strategic plan and governance decisions.

Identity Statement

Sacred Heart is an inclusive school united in Jesus and committed through action to live the Josephite story as we learn, love and grow.

Vision Statement

Sacred Heart School:

  • Nurtures the dignity and value of each person;
  • Develops a relationship with Jesus as central to how we live and love;
  • Our choices and actions reflect awareness, compassion and commitment to others;
  • Creates learning that is purposeful and innovative; and
  • Parents, students and staff work collaboratively to create a safe, supportive and stimulating learning environment

Social Emotional Learning – “Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships”

The school uses the Department of Education and Training’s “Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships” age-appropriate resource as part of its Social Emotional Learning program. Throughout the year, students are engaged in age-appropriate learning about values and behaviours that support development and understanding of:

  • Emotional Literacy
  • Personal Strengths
  • Positive Coping
  • Problem Solving
  • Stress Management
  • Help Seeking
  • Gender and Identity
  • Positive Gender Relations

Through the Social Emotional Learning program, students are also educated about safety, including cybersafety, anti-bullying and age-appropriate awareness of risks to safety in the community, including environmental, physical and emotional safety, risks posed by other persons and how and where to seek help when safety is compromised.

Child Safety

Sacred Heart School is committed to ensuring the safety of all students in its community. The school achieves this by developing a culture of safety through risk management to identify and remove risks of child abuse, policy development and implementation, code of conduct screening, supervision and training, processes for responding to and reporting suspected child abuse and strategies to promote the participation and empowerment of children. In order to ensure the safety of children, the school has appointed a Child Safety Officer (Principal) and developed policies and procedures in conjunction with the Child Safe Standards.

Enactment of School Philosophy

In all our documents, in all practice by students and teachers, in work with the School Board and the community, in all teaching and learning programs, in all school initiatives, in all internal and external interactions, in all organisational structure and practices the vision of the school will sit at the centre and there will be expectations about all working aligning with the school vision. Regular evaluation processes will be in place to measure performance in all areas of the school with respect to the implementation of the vision and values of the school.

The process at our school can represented as the vision, values and beliefs at the centre. In an outer ring there will be a set of principles. As a further outer ring will be a set of practices. A detailed list of school policies will sit within this framework. In all work in the school the question “is this work or process in line with the school, vision, values and beliefs?” this question will be a fundamental part of the practice of all leaders in the school.
