Child Safety


Mountain Gate Primary School is committed to child safety. As a community, we want children to be safe, happy and empowered. We support and respect all children, as well as our staff, volunteers and visitors.

We are committed to the safety, participation and empowerment of all children. In implementing the minimum child safety standards Mountain Gate Primary School will take account of the diversity of all children, including (but not limited to) the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, children with disabilities, and children who are vulnerable; and make all reasonable efforts to accommodate these.

Mountain Gate Primary School is committed to preventing child abuse and identifying risks early, and removing and reducing these risks. We have robust human resources and recruitment practices for all staff, visitors and volunteers. Our school is committed to regularly training and educating our staff and volunteers on child abuse risks. Mountain Gate Primary School has specific policies, procedures and training in place that support our leadership team, staff and volunteers to achieve these commitments.

Every person involved in Mountain Gate Primary School has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role he/she plays individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make. There is zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently with our robust policies and procedures. We will meet our legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child’s safety.
