St John Bosco’s School is committed to upholding the 7 Child Safety Standards outlined in the Victorian Government’s Ministerial Order No. 870

These standards include:

  1. Strategies to embed an organisational culture of child safety including through effective leadership arrangements
  2. Child Safety Policy
  3. Code of Conduct establishing clear expectations for appropriate behaviour
  4. Screening, Supervision, Training and other human resources. Practices that reduce the risk of child abuse by new and existing personal
  5. Processes in responding to and reporting suspected child abuse
  6. Strategies to identify and reduce or remove risks of child abuse

All parents will be required to sign and abide by the School Community Child Safety Code of Conduct.  This Code of Conduct has a specific focus on safeguarding our students at St John Bosco’s against abuse and neglect. It has been developed in accordance with the Victorian Government’s Ministerial Order No. 870 to support the school’s Staff, Volunteer & Contractor Child Safety Code of Conduct and defines expectations of parents and those members of the school community, who may, at times act as volunteers.  In order to safeguard the children of SJB we ask all parents to sign this code of conduct.

Working With Children Check (WWCC)

Any parent wishing to participate in child centred works e.g. classroom helper and canteen will need to provide a current Working With Children Check to the office.  WWCC can be obtained through: http://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au/
