St Joseph's Primary School Catholic Schools

Student Protection

St Joseph’s School is committed to the safety and wellbeing of our students and families. Our school staff members have specific responsibilities in order to meet both legislative and policy based student protection requirements, which are detailed in our Student Protection Policy and Procedure. These procedures are accessible to anyone either by making a request through the school Administration Office, or by visiting the student protection page of the Catholic Education Toowoomba website at: http://www.twb.catholic.edu.au/Board/Pages/GuidelinesSP.aspx


Our staff members receive comprehensive training in our procedures through an initial induction process, complemented by ongoing annual training as part of our professional development processes.


St Joseph’s School also implements the Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy, as prescribed by the legislative requirements under the Working with Children (Risk Management and Screening) Act 2000, which includes Blue Card checks and monitoring processes that ensure that staff members and volunteers have undergone suitability checks to work with children. Should you wish to learn more about the Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy, please contact the school though our Administration Office.”
