Positive Behaviour

Positive Behaviour

The Student Services Team aims to support students to achieve academic success, behavioural support and mental, social, physical and emotional well-being.

Student Services is Coodanup College’s pastoral care structure. Student Services takes a multidisciplinary, wrap-around service delivery approach, incorporating all of the skills and knowledge from different members of the team who come from diverse professional backgrounds.

The Student Services team supports and advocates for students who are identified as being at risk. ‘At risk’ can mean socially, medically, emotionally or academically at risk of not reaching their potential.

How Does Student Services Operate?

The Student Services Team meets on a fortnightly basis to allocate student referrals to relevant team members. We appoint an appropriate and skilled Case Manager to support students who have been referred. 

A case manager may support by providing: 

  • One-to-one counselling, assessments, mentoring and guidance
  • Individualised plans to meet student needs
  • Referrals to outside agencies

Student Services Programs

The Student Services Team is also responsible for the development of wider school community programs. We have a variety of Student Services programs run by external agencies which are aimed at increasing student awareness and strategies to improve anger management, self-esteem, healthy bodies/nutrition, physical wellbeing and outdoor learning.
