PASTORAL AT TRIDENT
We aim to ensure the well-being of our students both within and outside the school.
PASTORAL COMMITMENT AT TRIDENT
We aim to ensure the well-being of our students both within and outside the school. We have a strong network of staff to provide support and guidance. Form teachers guide overall progress of each student in the form class and this involves monitoring attendance. Deans, available at each year level, focus on the welfare of each student, including their academic progress.
VALUES BASED LEARNING FOR A SAFER ENVIRONMENT
We promote a safe and caring environment free from put-downs or bullying, and drugs. Board of Trustees, parents, staff and students are all supportive of our ‘zero tolerance’ policies.
Trident focuses on student success through reinforcing our core values of:
· Respect For Others (Manaakitanga),
· Quality Work (Whāia te iti kahurangi)
· Courage (Kia Manawa Nui)
We expect responsible behaviour and use strategies that encourage this.
PASTORAL CARE FOR STAFF
Pastoral care also applies to staff and a very supportive and collegial atmosphere is promoted. An example of the Board of Trustees supporting this concept is by providing staff sabbaticals and paying a portion of tertiary study fees.
