From The Hills To The Sea – Being The Best We Can Be

Child Safe Standards

       CHILD SAFE STANDARDS

       WHAT WE EXPECT AT TOORA PRIMARY SCHOOL

  • Everyone connected to our school can help children be safe.
  • We have zero tolerance of any abuse of children.
  • We have policies and processes in place to protect the care, safety and welfare of children.
  • There are clear boundaries about how adults in our school community may interact with our students.
  • The child safe standards apply to school staff (including volunteers and contractors), visitors and students’ family members.
  • Keeping children safe is everyone’s responsibility.
  • To ensure you know how we are keeping your children safe at school, and how we’d like you to support us (for families).
  • Unsupervised contractors will be asked to present their Working With Children card as condition of working with us if they work with children enrolled in the school (or that children can reasonably be expected to be present while they are at the school)
  • Other people using our school facilities will be asked to comply with our child safe standards as a condition of using our facilities, if they involve children enrolled at the school (or that children can reasonably be expected to be present while their staff or other adults are at the school).

If you suspect a child is being abused, please follow up with the School Principal or report directly to Child Protection / Police.
