Child safety

At St Columba’s Primary School we hold the care, safety and wellbeing of children and young people as a central and fundamental responsibility of our school.


We believe that every student has the right to:

  • Feel safe and be safe
  • Be safe
  • Be respected
  • To learn

Therefore we endorse the following:

  1. Everyone in our school has a responsibility to help others to feel safe and be safe.
  2. Everyone needs to respect the right of the teacher to educate and the right of students to learn.
  3. We all need to follow classroom and playground rules.
  4. We all must respect the belongings of others.
  5. We all need to respect each other’s personal space.
  6. No one should use language that is disrespectful – swearing is unacceptable.
  7. No one in our school should BULLY others – our school is a No Bullying Zone.
