Health & Wellbeing

Reddam House is committed to providing a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment for all students. We believe that students can reach their full educational potential when they are happy, healthy and safe, and when there is a positive school culture to engage and support them in their learning. We believe that student wellbeing and student learning outcomes are inextricably linked and is a strong determinant of our students' success.

Teaching staff work collectively to ensure that students feel valued and cared for and have meaningful opportunities to contribute to the school, and effectively engage with their learning. This is achieved through our Year 10–12 Mentoring program and Year 7–9 Tutor programs.

Reddam House recognises the need to be engaging and inclusive, responding to the diverse needs of our students, accommodating different learning profiles, rates of learning and intervening early to identify and respond to individual student needs.

We strive to be a learning community where students and teachers can relate well to each other, and where different ideas and viewpoints are valued and respected.

We aim to challenge all students to become optimistic, resilient, creative and critical thinkers and always promote our school values of mutual respect, kindness, diversity, acceptance, responsibility and achievement. Our teaching and learning are rigorous, and each teacher will make a commitment to appropriately support, build and challenge every student, constantly developing relationships that are an essential component of effective learning and teaching.

With the aid of our highly qualified School Psychologists, one on each campus, our practices are responsive to contemporary research, innovation and are informed by the stages of child and adolescent development.

Reddam House focuses on establishing positive and respectful relationships, particularly between teachers and students, and establishing a learning community that provides multiple and diverse opportunities for students to experience success.
