Secondary College has an extensive Student Support Program which underpins all
academic and co-curricular programs at the College. The Student Support
Program emphasis is on the development and nurturing of a strong and positive
relationships between staff and students and it is important that each student
feels safe and secure. While at school, form teachers are the students’
first point of contact. Each form teacher takes a personal interest in
each member of his/her form group. A student can go to their form teacher
for advice, guidance or support on a personal basis. Form teachers foster
this relationship by meeting with their group once a day.
Level Coordinators and Learning Partners are often the next point of contact for students and
parents. When issues of a personal nature arise, the Year Level Coordinators
work with form teachers and are responsible for the implementation of student
management across each year level. They provide counselling and guidance
on a range of student support issues including social adjustment,
progress, behaviour and attendance. Year Level Coordinators should be
the first point of contact for parents in relation to such matters.
The Wellbeing Team is responsible for coordinating student wellbeing and includes:
This team works with students, families and staff on a range of issues including out of school referrals, assessments, school issues, counselling and attendance. Students and families can contact any member of the Wellbeing Team by phoning the College on (03) 9308 1144 and participation in any service is voluntary.
INJURY/ILLNESS AT THE COLLEGE
Craigieburn Secondary College provides First Aid and Sick Bay. Students who are too ill to attend a full day’s schooling should not be sent to school. Students who become ill or are injured at school are referred to the General Office. The First Aid Officers will determine the course of action to be followed in each instance. If it is necessary for the student to be sent home, the College will contact the parents. No student is ever sent home from Craigieburn Secondary College without parent contact having being made and an assurance given that the child will be in the care of a responsible adult.
the case of an emergency where the parent cannot be contacted, the school will
take whatever action is considered necessary for the safety of the child.
This may include calling an ambulance. For this reason the College
Council and staff strongly recommend to all parents that they subscribe to the
Ambulance Services of Victoria.
Medication should not be stored in lockers or carried around in students’ bags. Any student requiring medication should leave it with the General Office and fill out the Medication form together with instructions regarding dispensing. Medication must be labelled with the student’s name. No medication will be given to any student without written consent from a parent or guardian.

If you are a member of an ambulance or private health insurance fund you may also be able to claim transport or other expenses form the fund.
