Child Safety

The care, safety and wellbeing of children and young people is a central and fundamental responsibility of Sacred Heart Primary School.


We have developed the Sacred Heart Primary School Child Safety Policy, which sets out the school’s procedures and strategies to keep students safe from harm. The policy contains our Child Safety Code of Conduct, reporting and responding processes and screening and recruitment of school staff procedures, which are applied to all employees and volunteers involved in child-connected work. It also sets out detailed definitions of child abuse, types of reportable conduct and how Sacred Heart manages risk – that is, how we reduce or eliminate (where possible) all potential sources of harm.The commitment of our Child Safety Policy is drawn from and inherent in the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ, with love, justice and the sanctity of each human person at the heart of the gospel.
