In St. Patrick’s College we have a responsibility for the safeguarding and child protection of the children in our care and we carry out this duty by providing a caring, supportive and safe environment, where each child is valued for his or her unique talents and abilities, and in which all our young people can learn and develop to their full potential. All staff, teaching and non-teaching are continually trained on child protection matters and know the procedures to be followed.
