The college has an extensive Child Protection Policy. Issues relating to the safety and well being of all pupils and staff are treated with confidentiality. Mrs E Graham is the Designated Child Protection Teacher, and Mrs B Ferguson is the Deputy Designated Child Protection Teacher. All school staff are regularly briefed on the policy, procedure and practice for dealing with child protection issues. Parents and pupils receive a copy of the procedure for reporting a child protection issue in September each year.
Bullying is not tolerated in St. Paul’s College. Each teacher is vigilant to the possibility of bullying and if there are suspicions that pupils are being victimised, or if they are threatening the safety of other pupils, they are dealt with through the school discipline system. Our school prefects report any incidences of bullying around the school, or on the bus journey to and from school, to a relevant member of staff.
Society is changing and we feel we have a duty to inform and educate our young people on the consequences of drug use and misuse, whilst also appreciating that, there are parental and community issues over which we have no control. It is our belief that all young people need the skills to help them to resist negative peer and social pressures and allow them to develop positive lifestyles and values which will enable them to respect themselves and others.
