POLICIES

Ballarat Grammar is committed to zero tolerance of child abuse. All staff and members of our community have a duty of care to protect the safety, health and wellbeing of children in their care.

As a school with a diverse population, this includes students with a disability, aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

We do this by:

  1. Adhering to Ballarat Grammar’s Protection policies at all times and upholding Ballarat Grammar’s statement of commitment to Child Safety.
  2. Following the correct procedures when reporting any child safety concerns and allegations of child abuse.
  3. Ensuring that child protection is a shared responsibility between all employees, contractors, associates and members of the Ballarat Grammar community.
  4. Having a commitment to promoting the cultural safety, participation and empowerment of all students, including those from diverse backgrounds.
  5. Having a commitment to providing a safe environment for all children.
  6. Having a commitment to Child Safe recruitment practises. All teaching staff who are employed at Ballarat Grammar must have current Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) Teacher Registration (including a National Criminal History Record Check) or VIT Permission to Teach Registration. All other general staff and volunteers are required to have a Working with Children check and a recent Police check.
