BELLE VUE PRIMARY SCHOOL’S COMMITTMENT TO CHILD SAFETY
Belle Vue PS is a child safe organisation which welcomes all children, young people and their families.
We have no tolerance for child abuse and take proactive steps to identify and manage any risks of harm to students in our school environment.
We are committed to providing environments where our students are safe where their participation is valued, their views respected, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Particular attention will be paid to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, as well as the safety of children with a disability. Our child safe policies, strategies and practices are inclusive of the needs of all students.
Child safety is a shared responsibility. Every person involved in our school has an important role in promoting child safety and wellbeing and promptly raising any issues or concerns about a child’s safety.
We are committed to regularly reviewing our child safe practices, and seeking input from our students, families, staff, and volunteers to inform our ongoing strategies.
Our school acknowledges we are required to take reasonable precautions to prevent the abuse of a child by an individual associated with the organisation while the child is under the care, supervision or authority of the organisation.
