Child safety and protection
The wellbeing of every student is central to all that we do at St Peter’s College and we are committed to ensuring a safe, supporting and nurturing school.
Our highest priority is the safety of our students, which we seek to ensure through the comprehensive policies, procedures and training that we have in place. These policies include:
- Child protection policy
- Managing allegations of student sexual offending policy and procedure
- Managing child abuse allegations policy and procedure
- Sexual harassment policy
Other policies are located on the policies page.
Following the recent findings of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, it is incumbent on every institution to reflect upon its practices to ensure the wellbeing of all students is maintained. We continue to review our policies and procedures and our number one priority is, and will remain, the wellbeing, safety and care of every student.
Abusive behaviour is not acceptable and is completely at odds with the School’s core values. St Peter’s College has engaged and taken decisive action when an issue has become known and we will continue to do so. We are also committed to working with any former student who has experienced abuse at the School to find resolution for them in a caring and compassionate manner.
