Our Policies

St Patrick’s is registered by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) as a member of the Catholic system in the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle.

Policy development and review is an important role of the Catholic Schools Office (CSO) and its schools. All policy development is designed to foster the continuous development and improvement of Catholic schools. Please find below a list of policies set by St Patrick’s and click here to view the CSO policies.

The School’s Policy Manual contains a wide range of documents. These documents were developed by the School and approved by the Catholic School’s Office to reflect the school’s stance on the many issues it needs to address.


The Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle has an absolute and abiding commitment to promote the safety, welfare and wellbeing of all children. The Office of Safeguarding provides child protection services for the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle.
