St Peter Chanel School ensures that all Student Protection legislative requirements are adhered to. This includes meeting the accreditation requirements of the Non-State School Accreditation Board, which has approved the Student Protection processes to be used in schools.
Your children and their safety and wellbeing are our priority. St Peter Chanel is committed to the protection of all our students from harm and abuse. There have been some recent changes to legislation in relation to reporting of student protection matters by schools.
Reporting of Concerns – At St Peter Chanel any concerns or reasonable suspicions we have about a student’s safety and wellbeing or the behaviour of a staff member or volunteer which a student considers to be inappropriate, will continue to be managed in accordance with Brisbane Catholic Education Student Protection Processes. All our staff recently undertook training on their reporting responsibilities. A link to the Brisbane Catholic Education Student
