From time to time, our school publishes documentation in regards to our policies and procedures. St Bernadette’s follows Catholic Education, Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) direction in Safeguarding, Child Protection, Managing Complaints and Reportable Matters. As these Policies are in PDF format, they cannot be attached here, so over the next week, we will publish these policies in SkoolBag notifications. We are publishing these Policies as it is a requirement of our Compliance framework.
Reportable Conduct refers to any behaviour relating to a child which causes significant emotional or psychological harm to a child. This behaviour may come from another child, staff member, parent or other adult in the community.
Managing Complaints concerns complaints raised by parents/guardians, students, visitors, volunteers, community members and contractors expressing dissatisfaction with a service provided by CEDP, the behaviour and decisions of staff members or about CEDP practices, policies and procedures. The Policy contains information as to how these are handled fairly and with due process.
Safeguarding refers to the procedures that must be followed by staff members when responding to concerns relating to children and young persons.
Please look for our SkoolBag notifications in the coming weeks and read these policies as they relate to the safety of all our community members.
Have a wonderful week,
