I was interested to learn the other day that many students had no idea that teachers have continually-monitored police checks as part of their requirements for teacher registration.
Beaconhills College, along with schools and organisations across Victoria, is now implementing new Child Safe standards which embed a zero-tolerance approach to child abuse.
While police checks for teachers is not a new initiative, there are many new, rigorous requirements under the Child Safe Standards which are aimed at ensuring the care, safety and wellbeing of students in Victorian schools.
For example, did you know that:
• We have a child protection policy in place that clearly outlines what the College expects from all of its staff
• All suppliers and volunteers must undergo an induction program and have a WWC (Working With Children) check – this includes basketball and netball coaches, parents providing support in the classroom, library, College Shop and those working with the equestrian or HPV teams
• We have trained Child Safe officers at both campuses who will respond swiftly in the event of reported case of child abuse
• Appropriate information about the new standards will be made available to students next year
Of course our Wellbeing Committee WELL-COM, will continue to work on implementing the new Child Safe Standards to ensure we maintain the best practice possible in this area.
