At St Luke’s School, Revesby we model ourselves upon the person and teachings of Jesus and strive to act according to gospel values. Our school motto is Peace. We believe that relationships of trust, co-operation and partnership between school personnel and families are of fundamental importance to pastoral care. High-quality pastoral care flows from our vision of Catholic Education (Sydney Catholic Schools Towards 2005) and is expressed in our own Mission Statement.

The resolution of conflict in every school community is vital to the well being and success of the school community.
At our school we recognise that parents/carers must have access to processes that allow them to resolve concerns and complaints in a supportive conciliatory environment.
Your Rights and Responsibilities
Most concerns should be able to be resolved informally. Any parent/carer has the right to raise a concern and have it responded to promptly, fairly and without fear of repercussions, according to principles of procedural fairness.
Confidentiality will be respected and maintained by all parties involved.
Letters of Concern/Complaint & Verbal Complaints
Any letters of concern or complaint from parents, are to be shown to the Principal. The matter is to be attended to and the teacher is to note on the letter the manner in which the concern is resolved. The letter is then to be given to the Principal for filing.
Complaints raised verbally, are also made known to the Principal so that appropriate action can be taken.
What is the Process?
