At St Columbkille’s, we are committed to creating a caring, safe and supportive environment, so that all individuals, including those with special and diverse needs, feel valued, respected and encouraged to achieve their potential.

The school implements the PB4L framework, which emphasises school-wide systems of support. These include proactive strategies for defining, teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviours. Positive behaviour supports are implemented for all students, across all school settings, by all staff, at all times. This results in creating and sustaining school-wide, classroom and individual systems of support, to improve students’ academic and social outcomes.
