Child Protection Complaints Management
The College has developed a Child Protection and Safety 2: Grievance and Complaints Policy to ensure that any child protection-related feedback, comments or complaints from College community members and relevant stakeholders are captured, analysed and acted upon where appropriate.
Child Protection and Safety 2: Grievance and Complaints Policy
This may include feedback about certain staff members or volunteers, or the College’s Child Protection Program.
When a complaint is made to the College it is important for the College to consider whether the complaint raises any concerns about unreported abuse and/or risk of abuse at the College.
The Federation of CRC Council, staff including the Principal, Volunteers, Third Party Contractors and External Education Providers must follow the College’s Child Protection and Safety 3: PROTECT: Identifying and responding to abuse – Reporting obligations if any information received with a complaint leads to new grounds for a reasonable belief or suspicion that a student may be subject to, or at risk of, any unreported abuse.

Child Protection Information for Parents and Students
Keeping children safe is everyone's responsibility. This means if you think child abuse might be happening, you must report it. If you don't report, it could be a criminal offence.
Report child abuse by calling triple zero (000) or contacting the Child Protection unit at the Department of Health and Human Services.
