St Paul’s Service established the Rights Committee in November 2012. The Committee meets on a quarterly basis. Its aims are to review and advise on the protection and safety of children and adolescences within the service. The committee has an advisory role and reports to and communicates directly with the Executive Management Committee.


Any individual using the service, their advocate or a member of staff may refer an issue to the Rights Committee.


It oversees best practice in the areas of:

  • Restrictive Practices
  • Basic Rights
  • Advocacy
  • Complaints


Each month the Rights Review Committee will identify a ‘Right of the Month’ to focus attention upon.


Information relating to this will be provided on St Paul’s School Website. This can be found within the Policies Section of this website.
