This Child Safety Policy demonstrates our school’s commitment to creating and maintaining a child safe and child-friendly organisation, where children and young people are safe and feel safe. This policy provides an overview of our school’s approach to implementing Ministerial Order 1359, which sets out how the Victorian Child Safe Standards apply in school environments. It informs our school community of everyone’s obligations to act safely and appropriately towards children and guides our processes and practices for the safety and wellbeing of students across all areas of our work.
This policy is to outline the procedures our school has in place to respond to complaints or concerns relating to child abuse and to ensure that all staff and members of our school community understand and follow the various legal obligations that apply to the reporting of child abuse to relevant authorities.
The purpose of this Emergency and Critical Incident Management Plan (EMP) is to provide a detailed plan of how this school campus will prepare and respond to emergencies and critical incidents that may impact on student and/or staff health, safety and well-being and/or school operations.
This COVID-19 Safety Management Plan (COVIDSafe Plan) applies to all Victorian government schools, and outlines key health, safety, and wellbeing hazards that schools should plan for. It links to the strategies described in the School Operations Guide and supports schools to plan for and implement the key health and safety controls in the context of coronavirus (COVID-19).
