Trinity Lutheran College is committed to being a Child Safe organisation. The College has a zero tolerance for child abuse and is committed to acting in the children’s best interests and in keeping them safe from harm. We regard our child protection responsibilities with the utmost importance and as such, are committed to providing the resources to ensure compliance with all relevant child protection laws and regulations and in maintaining a child safe culture.
The College’s Child Safe Program is made up of work systems, practices, policies (see below) and procedures designed to maintain a child safe environment and to embed an organisational culture of child safety within the College community. We have established and implemented our Child Safe Program in accordance with the Victorian Child Safe Standards.
Our Child Safety Policies can be found below:
In addition we require all volunteers at the school to pass the Victorian government’s Working With Children Check (WWCC), be fully inducted to our policies and procedure per our Child Safe Volunteer Induction Program.
