Student Protection is a matter for all who are a part of the Our Lady of the Sacred Heart community, staff and parents alike. We take a proactive approach to student protection, providing staff with annual training.
Where the school principal is provided with documentation regarding particular family or parenting orders which are in place, the school staff will make every effort to ensure that such orders are adhered to in accordance with the conditions outlined.
It is up to the parents concerned to resolve the legal aspects in such cases and to provide the school principal with written proof of any alterations to decisions as handed down by the courts.
Parents are advised that the school can only act legally as per the directions outlined in legal documentation.
It is important that parents inform the office staff of any changes in address, contact names, telephone numbers or other particulars on the original enrolment form. It is important that the school has enough information to be able to contact parents or an emergency contact when required. This information must be given to the school staff, as accurate enrolment details are essential to the well-being of students.
Parents can do this via the Skoolbag Parent App or by emailing the school at firstname.lastname@example.org
