ST. MARY’S PRIMARY SCHOOL COMMITMENT TO CHILD SAFETY

St. Mary’s Primary School is committed to the safety and welfare of all children, within a secure environment. 

All children have a right to be treated with respect and to be protected from abuse and harm. 

As part of the Victorian Government's commitment to implementing the recommendations of the Betrayal of Trust report, there is a new regulatory landscape surrounding child safety, underpinned by new Child Safe Standards.

The Child Safe Standards are compulsory minimum standards for all Victorian schools, to ensure they are well prepared to protect children from abuse and neglect.

To create and maintain a child safe organisation, an entity to which the Child Safe Standards apply must have:

Strategies to embed an organisational culture of child safety, including through effective leadership arrangements

  •   A child safe policy or statement of commitment to child safety
  •   A code of conduct that establishes clear expectations for appropriate behaviour with children
  •   Screening, supervision, training and other human resources practices that reduce the risk of child abuse by new and existing personnel
  •   Processes for responding to and reporting suspected child abuse
  •   Strategies to identify and reduce or remove risks of child abuse
  •   Strategies to promote the participation and empowerment of children
