Student Engagement

Belmore School is committed to providing a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment for all students. Belmore School advocates for all students to reach their full educational potential when they feel safe, secure and happy in a positive school culture that promotes students engagement and participation in all educational programs to their best of ability.

At Belmore School we promote best students engagement and learning outcomes through a collaborative model of practice The Team Around The Learner where we believe that working together as a committed multi-disciplinary professional team alongside the families we can achieve best engagement and learning outcomes for our students.

Our work as a collaborative team to promote students engagement and inclusion in Education is aligned with the Department of Education and Training Health and Wellbeing Principles:

Principle 1 – Maximise access and inclusion
Quality universal services for all, with extra effort directed to ensuring education and health and wellbeing services are accessible to, and inclusive of, the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.

Principle 2 – Focus on outcomes
Health, learning, development and wellbeing outcomes are the focus when designing, delivering, evaluating and improving education and health and wellbeing services.

Principle 3 – Evidence-informed and reflective practice
Current and relevant evidence known to be effective in improving outcomes informs policy making and professional practice. Research and evaluation is undertaken to generate evidence and enable effective and reflective practice.

Principle 4 – Holistic Approach
Collaboration between services and multi-disciplinary professional practice is pursued to meet the needs of children, young people and families and their health, wellbeing and learning goals.

Principle 5 – Person-centred and family sensitive practice
People are seen in the context of their families and environment and are supported and empowered to lead and sustain healthy life.

Principle 6 – Partnerships with families and communities
Partnerships are forged with children, young people, families and communities, who are seen as partners in the creation of healthy environments and good health and wellbeing

Principle 7 – Cultural Competence
Effort is made to understand and effectively communicate with people across cultures and to recognise one’s own world view. Cultural connection is recognised as playing an integral part in healthy development and wellbeing.

Principle 8 – Commitment to excellence
High expectations are held for every child and young person. Professionals continually assess their own work and practices to find opportunities for improvement.
