STUDENT SUPPORT

Larmenier Catholic Primary School aims to provide an education that meets the needs of every child.

Children are supported in a variety of ways depending on their individual needs.

We have a range of programs and approaches that support children who are finding school difficult as well as those who excel at school. Our Student Support teacher works closely with parents to find an approach that works for the individual child.

Children may sometimes need to be referred to other professionals in order to gather the information needed to provide properly for them. This occurs in close consultation with parents. 

Wellbeing is also integral to Student Support. Larmenier is able to refer children to a counsellor from Catholic Care, who works within the school setting.

SCHOOL WIDE POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR SUPPORT

School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is a whole school process teaching behavioural expectations in the same manner as any core curriculum subject. SWPBS recognises and rewards student behaviour in a positive and uplifting manner across the School.

Larmenier Catholic School, along with all Tasmanian Catholic primary schools, is a Positive Behaviour School. Our School community, with input from staff, parents and students, created the five core principles that we believe.

  • Be Respectful
  • Be a Friend
  • Believe in Yourself
  • Be Safe
  • Be a Learner

We explicitly teach, discuss and focus on these principles to assist students’ understanding of the appropriate ways to behave and interact with other members of our community.
