Care of persons in Catholic schools is founded on the inviolable dignity of the human person made in the image and likeness of God. The Catholic school is a school for all, with special attention to those who are weakest. This radical inclusiveness is a clear expression of and witness to Christ’s life and teaching by a school community. Therefore each school is to be sensitive to the particular and unique needs of the local community and respond with compassion and kindness.

A key element in supporting student care and well-being at Kildare catholic College is the adoption of the Whole-School Positive Behaviour Support model. The underpinning of this model is made clear in the graphic below.

In supporting learning and well-being we should be careful not to artificially separate the two through language use, structures or procedures. This graphic affirms that with appropriate school-wide systems and policies up to 90% of students are entirely capable of monitoring, managing and reflecting gainfully on their learning and behavior. A small percentage require targeted group interventions and a very small number require intensive, individual intervention, often involving external expertise.

House Coordinators and KLA Coordinators work as a team to ensure that learning and well-being go hand-in-hand as first priorities in the College. Inclusive Education staff and welfare staff plan target interventions for groups, and CSO staff, Inclusive Education staff and Centacare counselling staff plan individual interventions for those students in most need.
