We take our responsibility to protect children seriously. All staff are expected to promote child safety by having a clear understanding of their legal child protection responsibilities and act in accordance with those responsibilities.
In particular St Peter’s Catholic College will:
- Maintain professionalism in our interactions with children at all times by exercising appropriate duty of care and maintaining appropriate professional boundaries.
- Follow an established process to address allegations of inappropriate behaviour by staff towards children.
- Ensure all people working in our school including parent volunteers, are appropriately screened for working with children.
- Respond appropriately when we suspect a child is at risk of significant harm due to possible abuse or neglect by a parent/carer or other adult.
Child Protection Policies
The Catholic Schools Office develops, publishes and assists St Peter’s Catholic College to implement a range of policies setting out clearly the approaches we take to important issues.
The policies explain who is responsible for putting in place processes within each policy. Policies also provide a statement of intent from which procedures and guidelines can be developed.
