All children and young people who come to St Michael’s Grammar School have the right to feel and be safe.
We are committed to providing a child safe and child friendly environment, where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and can actively participate in decisions that affect their lives. As a School that values the dignity of the individual and has the principles of inclusion and diversity at its heart, this includes students with a disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, and children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
We have zero tolerance for child abuse and other harm, and are committed to acting in students’ best interests and keeping them safe from harm.
The School regards its child safety responsibilities with the utmost importance. We are committed to providing the necessary resources to ensure compliance with all relevant child safety and wellbeing laws and regulations, and maintaining a child safe culture.
Each member of the School community has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role they play individually and collectively, to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all students is at the forefront of all that they do and every decision that they make.
