Child Protection and Safety

The new standards for child safety have been brought into effect for all Victorian schools as set out in Ministerial Order 870.

Through collaboration, vigilance and proactive approaches, all members of our catholic school community are invested in ensuring the creation of a fully child safe school.

We achieve compliance through the sustained maintenance of up to date policies and procedures, continual staff training, visitor induction and parent collaboration and communication. Child Safety is the responsibility of everyone.

At Immaculate Heart of Mary Primary School, we believe that ensuring the safety of the students in our care is an integral part of who we are as a Catholic faith community.  We believe that each person is made in the image of God, and our ethos that every child has the right to expect that our school will always be a safe place where they can be protected from any kind of harm.
