Statement of Commitment to Child Safety

Laverton P-12 College has zero tolerance for child abuse.

 

Laverton P-12 College is committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and they are empowered where their voices are heard about decisions that affect 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.

 

Our school values of learning, belonging and succeeding uphold our school’s approach to creating a child safe organisation where students are safe, feel safe and are respectful, responsible and resilient.

 

Laverton P-12 College is committed to safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making.
