Child safeguarding

Safeguarding 2018 Cover Amended

The Catholic Board of Education (CBE) is committed to making sure that children are protected while at a Catholic school and requires that all Catholic schools in South Africa have a Child Safeguarding Policy in place.

The underlying principles that guide this policy follow the legal requirements of South Africa, the Gospel, the mission of the Catholic Church, and the professional commitment of all staff members at schools. The policy outlines how school communities are obliged to keep their children safe.
