Keeping our students safe from harm is a key focus and responsibility for all staff at Glenroy College. New draft child safety policies have just been created and Glenroy College invites families to have their say.
The policies set out the steps Glenroy College will take to create a safe learning environment for all students, both around the College, while on camps and excursions, and in College-supported online spaces used for learning.
A safe place for students
Each policy sets out child safety requirements for staff and school council and also explains how the College will work with families to create a culturally supportive environment within the school. Procedures and requirements for what the College must do if staff suspect a child or young person is being abused are also covered. This includes cases of physical or sexual abuse, family violence, emotional abuse and neglect.
It’s important that our school community understands our obligations to act safely and appropriately towards children. It’s also vital that families know what guides our processes and practices for the safety and wellbeing of students across all areas of our work.
