Child Safety

at

Burwood Heights Primary School


At Burwood Heights Primary School, we are committed to establishing and maintaining child-safe and child-friendly environments, where all children feel valued and safe; including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, children with disabilities and vulnerable children. We have zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns are treated very seriously and consistently through our strict policies and procedures which can be viewed here:

To minimise the risk of child abuse, and to uphold our strong culture of child safety, we provide education and training to all children, families, staff and volunteers, in line with the Department of Education and Training’s Four Critical Actions reporting procedure, which can be viewed here:
