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.
Galilee are committed to continuous review and improvement and our school policies and procedures 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, our staff and volunteers share our focus and emphasis on child safety and this is reflected through our comprehensive onboarding process. All team members also maintain a current Working With Children check.
