Student Protection

The well-being of students is paramount at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School. The very nature of our mission and ethos calls on us to place the highest priority on the safety and care of children.

Safety, security and nurture are fundamental human rights and needs. At St Mary’s Catholic Primary School any concerns or reasonable suspicions raised regarding a student’s safety and well-being (including the behaviour of a staff member or volunteer which a student considers to be inappropriate), will be managed in accordance with Rockhampton Catholic Education Student Protection Processes.

Further information about Rockhampton Catholic Education's commitment to Student Protection is available here.
