Tairangi School Procedure Statement

GUIDANCE COUNSELLING        NAG 5 Health and Safety

The following procedures are to be followed by the school:

  1. There is no formal guidance counselling system set up in the school.
  2. Teachers are usually the initial contact regarding guidance and counselling issues.  If teachers feel they are unable to deal with the issue, the syndicate leader and principal should be approached to formulate a suitable course of action.  This could include contacting parents and passing the issue on to a professional or activating procedures on sexual and physical abuse.
  3. The Season for Growth, grief and loss programme will operate in the school on the basis of need.  Other classroom health programmes such as Kia Kaha and Keeping Ourselves Safe may identify counselling issues.
