Student Protection Policy


The Mary MacKillop Catholic School Community expresses a strong belief in the dignity of the person, respect for each person and a shared responsibility for the care of others.


This policy exists to uphold the UN Charter of the Rights of the Child and a commitment by Mary MacKillop Catholic Primary to ensure that students, who are at risk of/or are experiencing ‘harm’ receive an immediate and appropriate response to their situation and are supported in addressing this most complex and sensitive issue. This response is, in the first instance, inspired by the belief that every student is made in the image of God and must be protected and treated with respect.


While parents are the primary educators of their children, this policy is an expression of our partnership with parents in providing for the safety and protection of all children.
