Child Safe

Our Commitment to Child Safety

Scoresby Primary School is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making. Scoresby Primary School has zero tolerance towards child abuse.

We are committed to providing a child-safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that effect their lives.

Particular attention will be paid to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and children from culturally and /or linguistically diverse backgrounds, as well as the safety of children with a disability.

To create and maintain a child safe organisation, Scoresby Primary School must comply with Ministerial Order No 870 – Child Safe Standards which came into effect on 1st August, 2016.
