Child Safety

All schools have a moral responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of students. At Ivanhoe Grammar School we take this responsibility very seriously.

We ensure our practices and policies reflect the relevant legislative requirements, including those set out in the Victorian Child Safe Standards. We are committed to a school culture where protecting children forms a part of our everyday thinking and activity.  The following policies and procedures help us achieve this.

Policies and procedures

Child Safety Policy

This policy outlines the framework within which the School will promote and protect student wellbeing, and under which we will create and maintain a child safe school environment.

Child Safety Concerns Management Procedure

This document sets out how a concern about student wellbeing may be raised with the School, and how such concerns will be managed.

Child Safety Code of Conduct

The purpose of this Code of Conduct is to establish clear expectations for appropriate and professional behaviour by staff at Ivanhoe Grammar School.

Staff behaviour will support the School’s objective of developing the attributes of an Ivanhoe Learner.

It will also reflect that building this potential is best achieved in an inclusive, respectful, courteous, safe environment free from bullying, sexual harassment, discrimination, victimisation and child abuse.
