Student Protection

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

Brisbane Catholic Education adheres to all Student Protection legislative requirements. This includes meeting the accreditation requirements of the Non-State Schools Accreditation Board, which has approved the Student Protection processes to be used in schools. Student Protection staff within the Brisbane Catholic Office have a role in assisting schools to discharge their Student Protection responsibilities.  Student Protection Officers with a background in social work, psychology or and human services assist schools and Brisbane Catholic Education Office personnel in the identification and management of cases of student harm.

Student Protection staff within the Brisbane Catholic Education Office also carry out an educative role in relation to Student Protection training for staff, volunteers and other personnel and support schools with other Student Protection strategies.
