Unity College seeks to nurture students with a focus on the social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual development. Staff assist students to find ways to fulfil their individual needs, recognise and celebrate their successes, learn from their mistakes and develop a sense of being connected with themselves and others around them.
The Class Teacher
Your child's Class Teacher is the primary carer of the students in his/her class and as such is the first point of communication between school and home. The Class Teacher has daily responsibility for their class, encompassing:
- Spiritual and emotional support
- Monitoring of attendance and academic progress
- Communication books/diaries and daily administration
- Uniform and personal presentation requirements
- Behaviour management
Daily Pastoral Care Checklist
Each day commences with Devotion or Worship. Pastoral Care Leader and School Pastor are available to assist individual students who seek support in relation to pastoral care issues or respond to referrals by the Class Teachers, the Head of Junior School or the Assistant Head of Junior School. The School Pastor also has particular responsibility for the spiritual life of the College Community.
There is regular contact with parents through class newsletters, open classrooms, parent teacher interviews and a comprehensive reporting system, including an online ongoing assessment portal. In addition, there are also a number of other ways that Unity College provides care and support for families.
