St Kilda Primary School is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. As part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to implementing the recommendations of the Betrayal of Trust report, there is a regulatory landscape (Ministerial Order No. 870) surrounding child safety, underpinned by the Child Safe Standards. This order came into operation on the 1st of August 2016.
In response to this legislation the St Kilda Primary School Welfare Team, Leadership Team, staff and School Council undertake an annual review of the Student Engagement and Wellbeing Policy, our Statement of Commitment to Child Safety and our SKPS Code of Conduct .
Children have the right to be safe and protected, including at school. It is important that you feel confident that your child is safe and well in the care of our school.
The child safe standards have been introduced in Victoria to achieve a zero-tolerance approach to child abuse.
