Wellbeing

Within boarding we aim to maintain a family atmosphere where every student matters every day.

Our mission is to develop high-achieving students who are connected globally, to each other and to the communities in which they live and which they serve.

Open, clear, and positive communication is encouraged to support all boarders at Haileybury Rendall School with guidelines for behaviour and house rules based mainly on mutual courtesy and respect, and the promotion of safety for all students.

The Head of Boarding oversees the boarding program and provides an important link between boarding and the Day School.

The Head of Boarding is assisted by an Assistant Head of Boarding—Pastoral Care and an Assistant Head of Boarding—Academic Achievement.

We also have several other staff who provide 24-hour care on a rostered basis and are supported by a team of residential tutors.

Communication is openly encouraged at all times between students, School staff and families.

The wellbeing and safety of boarders is our primary concern in a physical, social and cultural sense.

Such a culture comes from treating boarders as individuals, dealing with issues as if they involved members of one’s own family, and an ability to consider matters in perspective.

Pastoral Care

Haileybury Kormilda Boarding is focused on building a culture of trust and respect via connectedness.

Pastoral care begins in the boarding community and extends throughout the whole school.

Student Services provides a medical clinic, psychology counselling services, restorative meetings and programs to support boarders during the school day.

The Head of Student Services works closely with boarding staff to develop and implement holistic wellbeing programs that are tailored to the needs of boarders.

We provide our boarders with the highest standards of Duty of Care to ensure they always feel safe, connected and supported. This creates a culture whereby boarders feel at a home.

We also recognise that young people learn best when they are healthy, happy and retain a strong connection with family and their cultural beliefs.

Our qualified and experienced boarding staff work in partnership with our students to develop mutual respect and trust.
