Coláiste Iósaef – Pastoral Care

The quality of pastoral care influences the ethos and tone of our school. We strive to create an atmosphere in which students feel secure, know that they are valued and are encouraged in their learning, growth and social and spiritual development.

Our Pastoral Care Policy provides a framework in which students, staff and parents are aware of their expectations, responsibilities, consequences and the support structures in place to ensure that all members of the school community are treated with equality, respect and fairness. We believe that pastoral care and discipline are interrelated. Discipline is leading, guiding, encouraging and instructing students within a framework of rights, rules, responsibility, routine and consequences. We acknowledge the importance of parents/guardians in providing a safe, secure and supportive environment for our students.
