Child Safety & Wellbeing

St Mary’s Primary School demonstrates a strong commitment to the care, safety and wellbeing of all children and young people at school.  The school provides an outline of the policies, procedures and strategies developed to keep children and young people safe from harm, including all forms of abuse in the school environment, on campus, online and in other locations provided by the school.

As partners with families, caregivers and guardians in Catholic education and open to God's presence, St Mary’s School pursues fullness of life for all its children and young people and the school community to ensure the care, safety, wellbeing, and protection of its students. Together in God’s love, St Mary’s School will empower children and young people to encounter the future with respect, courage and kindness, enriched by life-giving relationships and inspired to bring the Gospel to life.

The care, safety and wellbeing of children and young people is a central and fundamental responsibility of St Mary’ Schools. (CECV Commitment Statement to Child Safety).

The person of each individual human being, in their material and spiritual needs, is at the heart of Christ’s teaching: that is why the promotion of the human person is the goal of the Catholic school (Congregation for Catholic Education 1997, n. 9).

School Policies and Procedures are available in hard copy from the office or by email.
