Teacher Professionalism

The school's vision, as an expression of the Catholic school, gives clear parameters for the professional behaviour of teachers.


School policies clearly state guidelines and procedures for the pastoral care and discipline of students, classroom management and the maintaining of a professional relationship with students, parents and colleagues.

Leadership actions

School leaders actively and collaboratively build a culture that promotes teacher behaviour and teacher- student relationships that are appropriate to the vision and mission of the Catholic school. For example they:

  • Respect the dignity and integrity of each person within the school community
  • Model appropriate classroom management so as to ensure the fair and equitable treatment of all students
  • Ensure the confidentiality of information where appropriate
  • Communicate with courtesy and respect with students, teachers colleagues and parents
  • Model the professional relationship between students and teachers, and parents and teachers
  • Dress in a manner that reflects the dignity of their teaching profession.
