Through the prayerful, supportive, nurturing, and protective endeavours of the Catholic community, St Mary's seeks to promote a culture of safeguarding where all are safe from harm and abuse and where every person is encouraged and enabled to enjoy the fullness of life in Jesus Christ.

This is done by offering properly thought-out activities to children, young people, and adults, by caring for individuals harmed by abuse, and by ministering to and firmly controlling those that have caused harm.

St Mary's adheres to and complies with the national safeguarding guidelines established by the Catholic Safeguarding Standards Agency (CSSA).
