The person of each individual human being, in his or her material and spiritual needs, is at the heart of Christ’s teaching; that is why the promotion of the human person is the goal of the Catholic school. (The Catholic School on the Threshold of the Third Millennium #9)
Catholic schools are committed to ensuring the young people in our schools are safe and protected from harm.
Appropriate and responsive interventions by schools, and especially Catholic schools, can provide hope to, and
foster resilience in students who may be at risk by protecting them from harm and supporting their healing.
Student protection is integral to learning and teaching. Safety, security and nurture are fundamental human rights
and needs. These rights and needs underpin students’ capacity for learning and maximise potential for personal
development ultimately enhancing their wellbeing and life opportunities.
