Student Wellbeing

Child Safety

At St Joseph’s we believe that the social, emotional, moral, spiritual and physical wellbeing of our students is pivotal to student health, safety, learning and success.

At St Joseph’s we acknowledge and understand that child safety is the responsibility of every person and is an integral aspect of student wellbeing. We aim to work collaboratively with parents, students and other community members to ensure a safe school environment.

We work under the Diocese of Sale Catholic Education Limited (DOSCEL) guidelines and use their policies to guide the procedures that are implemented in our school. The Child Safety policies are listed below. If you have any concerns or questions regarding child safety please contact our Principal, Marie Dodson, at principal@stjorbost.catholic.edu.au

Our commitment to the protection of students is based on our belief that each person is made in the image of God, and our ethos is to provide a safe and supportive environment.
