Child Protection & Safety

At St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, we acknowledge and understand that Child Safety is the responsibility of every person within our school and is an integral aspect of student wellbeing.  We aim to work collaboratively with parents, students and other community members to ensure our school is a safe environment.

Our commitment to the protection of students is based on our belief that each person is made in the image of God, and our ethos is to provide a safe and supportive environment.  All students have the right to expect that our school will always act to protect them from any kind of harm.

A child’s right to be safe is fundamental to our work at St Mary’s. It is crucial that each child is protected against physical and sexual abuse, and neglect. The following school policies outline our commitment to ensure that the emotional, moral, spiritual and physical wellbeing and safety of our students is pivotal.
