Statement of Commitment to the safety and wellbeing of children and the protection of children from harm.
St Luke’s Anglican School and Early Learning Centre supports the rights of children and young people and is committed to ensure the safety, welfare and wellbeing of students and children. St Luke’s Anglican School and Early Learning Centre is therefore committed to responding to allegations of student harm resulting from the conduct or actions of any person including that of employees.
This commitment includes the provision of a safe and supportive living and learning environment for all students and requires all employees, volunteers and visitors to model and encourage behaviour that upholds the dignity and protection of students and children from harm.
In support of this commitment, St Luke’s Anglican School and Early Learning Centre is dedicated to our Child and Youth Risk Management strategy which includes having relevant policies, procedures and training in place to effectively address the safety and wellbeing of children in their care.
