 Management, Organisation & Safety

Policy

At St Elizabeth’s Catholic primary school, effective management and organisation involves a cyclical process incorporating strategic planning, enactment, and evaluation. We aim to provide a safe learning and working environment by complying with current legislation, to support the safety and wellbeing of our students, parents, voluntary workers and others who visit the school.

Rationale

St Elizabeth’s School is committed to a high quality inclusive Catholic education, achieved by effective financial resource management and organisation, through our strategic planning. We provide an environment which protects the emotional and physical well-being of our students, staff, volunteers and visitors to the school premises, under the governance of Workplace Health and Safety Act of Brisbane Catholic Education.

Values

As Catholic Educators we hold fundamental values that are foundations to our work with students, parents and colleagues. We value:

  • Collaboration and subsidiarity –
    Using shared wisdom in decision making.
  • Mutual accountability -
    Reporting on the degree to which our intentions are realised.
  • Catholic Christian Community –
    A community that does not exist for itself but is empowered by the Spirit to be at the service of others.
