Child Safety & Policies

Holy Family Primary School Doveton

Child Safety is the core of what we do. We use multiple strategies to ensure that our students remain safe and are empowered to voice any concerns. 

 

These strategies include:

  • Establishing trusted relationships

  • Providing ongoing professional learning for staff

  • Communicating broadly about the Child Safety Standards

  • Surveying students

  • Establishing clear policies about child safety

  • Explicitly teaching students about child safety

Child Safe Champions

Our child safety team plays a crucial role in creating a secure and nurturing environment for our students. These dedicated individuals act as advocates for the well-being of children, ensuring that their safety is prioritised at all times. Child Safe Champions actively promote awareness and understanding of child protection policies among both staff and students.

Governance

Holy Family Doveton is a school which operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS).

 

MACS governs and operates Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge,

skills, and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them.

 

Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. 

This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between

schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures.
