Child Safety


Galilee Regional Catholic Primary School places the highest priority on the care, wellbeing and protection of children and young people. Founded in Christ and sustained by faith, we seek to fulfill our mission of enabling each student to come into the fullness of their own humanity. This includes paying attention to the inherent dignity of children and young people, and their fundamental right to be respected, nurtured and safeguarded by all. 

 

There has been a review of Galilee school policies and procedures to reflect recent Victorian legislative amendments with respect to managing the risk of child abuse. This policy update complements the introduction of new Victorian Child Safe Standards as stated in Ministerial Order No 870 which specifies the actions schools must take to meet each of the child safe standards.

 

Catholic schools must comply with legal obligations related to mandatory reporting and managing the risk of child abuse and ensure that all school policies and procedures are continually reviewed and updated to reflect Victorian legislative requirements.

 

At Galilee we have an emphasis on child safety during our recruitment process for staff and volunteers. There is an emphasis on child safety through our advertising and extensive screening processes. All staff and volunteers receive induction, through staff orientation programs and parent helper courses and are aware of their child safety responsibilities, including maintaining a current working with children check.

 

Please find Galilee's policies and guidelines related to child safety.
