Statement of Commitment to Child Safety and Wellbeing
All children and young people who come to Presbyterian Ladies’ College have a right to feel and be safe. We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. We are committed to providing a child safe and child friendly environment, where children and young people are safe and feel safe and are able to actively participate in decisions that affect their lives.
We have zero tolerance for child abuse, grooming and other harm and are committed to acting in students’ best interests and keeping them safe from harm.
The College regards its child safety responsibilities with the utmost importance and is committed to providing the necessary resources to ensure compliance with all relevant child protection laws and regulations and maintaining a child safe culture.
Each member of the College community has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role that 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.
The College’s Statement of Commitment to Child Safety has been designed to reflect the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations.
Our Child Safe Policy and Code of Conduct are made available to all staff, students, families, volunteers, contractors, suppliers and the wider community.
