Child Safety

At St Mary's we believe that the social, emotional,moral, spiritual and physical learning wellbeing of our students is pivotal to students health, safety, learning and success.

At St Mary's we acknowledge and understand that child safety is the responsibility of every person and is an integral aspect of student wellbeing. We aim to work collaboratively with parents, students, and other community members to ensure a safe school environment.

Our commitment to the protection of students is based in our belief that each person is made in the image of God, and our ethos is to provide a safe and supportive environment. All students have the right to expect that the school will always act to protect them from any kind of harm.

The protection and safety of all children is very important to all of us at St Mary's Maffra.  We work under the Diocese of Sale Catholic Education Limited (DOSCEL) guidelines and use their policies to guide the procedures that are implemented in our school.

If you require any further information or have questions relating to Child Safety, please be in contact the school principal Julian Blackford or alternatively our Child Safe Champion Tara Battista on              03 5147 1334
