A Safe Environment
Foundation Christian College provides a safe (physical, social and emotional), caring, Christian environment.
All staff, students and members of the College community need to positively contribute to the college culture so that the outcomes as stated in the rationale are achieved. The partnerships between parents and staff, staff and students and student and students are vital and open communication is essential.
The Bible is the foundation, which provides the key, not only to learning in every area, but to every area of the college’s life, including appropriate relationships between God’s people.
At Foundation Christian College every person has the right to be treated with respect. All people associated with the college (including staff, students, board and parents) need to develop respect for:
Parents of Foundation Christian College are encouraged to develop sound, biblical parenting skills so that all students are nurtured in a safe, positive and constructive family culture.
At FCC Parents should:
- Be aware of the Pastoral Care Policy and College Guidelines and be supportive of the Policy and Guidelines
- Encourage goal setting in their own children
- Encourage acceptable behaviour
- Get to know the staff
- Be alert to problems arising at school and report them appropriately
- Use the student diary for daily communication, when appropriate
Staff will communicate with parents through the diary or by phone to keep parents informed of any behaviour that requires modifying or attending to. Parents should respond to the College’s contact by talking about the problem and support strategies that encourage modification of behaviour. Parents should offer praise and encouragement for positive change in behaviour.
