 Student Protection

Your children and their safety and wellbeing are our priority.  St Kevin's 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 Kevin's 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 staff undertake annual training on their reporting responsibilities.  A link to the Brisbane Catholic Education Student Protection Processes can be found on our school website or they can be accessed on Brisbane Catholic Education’s public website www.bne.catholic.edu.au  Under the ‘Students and Parents’ tab select ‘Student Protection’ from the drop down menu and click on the relevant button.  (http://www.bne.catholic.edu.au/students-parents/Pages/StudentProtection.aspx)
 
Complaints Procedure 
Brisbane Catholic Education has published a Complaints Procedure for Non-Compliance with BCE Student Protection Processes. A link to the Complaints Procedure can be found on our school website.  Parents or students may make a complaint via the Record of Complaint about Non-compliance with Brisbane Catholic Education Student Protection Processes which  can be accessed on Brisbane Catholic Education’s public website www.bne.catholic.edu.au  Under the ‘Students and Parents’ tab select ‘Student Protection’ from the drop down menu and click on the relevant button.
We take all complaints very seriously and will handle them in accordance with the Complaints Procedure for Non-Compliance with BCE Student Protection Processes.
