Our school wellbeing programs aim to empower students in their development as autonomous, resilient lifelong learners who have the essential skills to engage positively as socially confident citizens in today's world.

Pastoral care

KEYS (keys to educational and youth success) is whole school wellbeing program

Our pastoral care KEYS  program has been developed to holistically reflect the wellbeing framework and to support all students through targeted lessons and mentoring.

KEYS sessions are proactive ‘welfare’ sessions that include activities and educational processes that anticipate ‘critical incidents’ in students’ lives. They are aimed at preventing and reducing the need for reactive casework. They also aim to equip students with skills for success in their studies and other aspects of their lives.

Academic care

The school has developed an academic care online platform, Dulwich Skills which is utilised to support student learning, transition and engagement through:

  • Personalised learning plans & Goal setting
  • E-portfolio development
  • Recording and acknowledgement of skill attainment
