Sacre Coeur promotes the safety, wellbeing and inclusion of all children.
All students enrolled at Sacré Cœur have the right to feel safe and to be safe. The wellbeing of children in our care will always be our first priority and we do not and will not tolerate child abuse. We aim to create a child-safe and child-friendly environment where children are free to enjoy life to the full without any concern for their safety. There is particular attention paid to the most vulnerable children, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and children with a disability.
Child Safety Officer
Sacré Cœur’s Child Safety Policy demonstrates the School’s commitment to the Victorian Child Safe Standards as set out in Ministerial Order No. 870.
The Child Safe Standards requires schools to plan, implement and review strategies that will embed a culture of child safety, in conjunction with the Principal, the Leadership Team and the Child Safety Officer (Director of Risk and Compliance) who play an essential role in ensuring that Sacré Cœur is a child safe school. The Child Safety Officer (Director of Risk and Compliance) leads the School’s Child Safety Culture by providing support, advice, training, monitoring, communicating and implementing Child Safety processes.
