Child Safe Standards
Our Commitment to Child Safety
Hume Valley 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.
Hume Valley School has zero tolerance for child abuse. All allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently in accordance with our robust policies and procedures.
Hume Valley School is 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 affect their lives. Particular attention will be paid to the safety of children with a disability, as well as the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds.
We meet our legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child’s safety, which we follow rigorously.
