Student welfare services support the pupils' growth and development and help create optimal conditions for learning. The aim is to render school a safe and pleasant experience for pupils, who should receive necessary guidance and support when faced with challenging situations.
Comprehensive schools are served by multi-professional student welfare teams. The teams work to promote the wellbeing of the school community and seek solutions to assist pupils in need of support. The teams can include the principal, a school nurse and school doctor, a school welfare officer and school psychologist, a special needs teacher, a guidance counsellor and, when needed, the class teacher or group instructor.
