At St Joseph’s we teach children in all year levels the Feeling Safe Strategy. This is mandated by Brisbane Catholic Education and is an integral part of our student protection processes. Teachers use the “Be a Hero” posters to discuss the following key ideas regarding students’ personal safety:
The concept of persistence is stressed i.e. students are encouraged to keep talking until someone listens and something is done to help them feel safe again. All staff participate in student protection training and professional learning to assist them to understand their legal, policy and pastoral responsibilities and to respond appropriately to student protection concerns. All volunteers are also required to complete student protection training.
The students of St Joseph’s, and their safety and well-being, are our priority. St Joseph’s is committed to the protection of all our students from harm and abuse.
