Child Safe Framework
Child safety is an ongoing key focus at Hillcrest Christian College. Providing a safe and supportive environment for children has always been an important part of being a Christian School. Legislation and compliance now demands all schools in Victoria focus in specific ways on child safety.
We are committed as a school community to doing our part to protect the children under our care. A safe environment includes developing a culture of child safety in the school, including a zero tolerance of child abuse. We all have been entrusted with an obligation to do the best we possibly can to keep our children safe from harm.
We have embraced the opportunity to strengthen the safety of our operations and aim to further develop a culture of child safety. We do not simply aim for compliance with the Child Safe standards; instead we seek to be a place of excellence where Child Safety is deeply embedded into the culture of the organisation.
