StageCoach is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment for it's students and is extremely proud to have been one of the first children's organizations to set up a Protection Protocol for its schools. The StageCoach Child Protection Policy is available to view for parents and staff at all of our schools.
StageCoach requires criminal record checks for all Principals, teachers and assistants; these are carried out through the RCMP and the provincial governments.
A vital part of StageCoach's Child Protection arrangements is that each school is run by a Principal whose role is to supervise rather than teach. Whilst the tuition is delivered by our specialist teachers the Principal will oversee all of the classes at the school.
In addition, every StageCoach Principal has direct contact with our dedicated Child Protection team and receives professional help and advice on those rare occasions that it is required. This protocol was established by the late Ray Wyre, a well known and respected figure in the field of children's safety. Since his death in 2008 StageCoach has retained the services of Phoenix Forensic Consultants, run by Steve Lowe, a well known and respected figure in the field of children's safety. Steve is available to our Principals 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on a StageCoach Emergency Hotline number.
The combination of a supervisory Principal, small class sizes and the immediate access to expert professional advice at any time sets StageCoach apart from many other organizations working with children.
