PROTECT Child Safe Standards

Westgarth PS is a Child Safe School. We have a firm commitment to uphold the standards and to embed a culture of child safety.Strategies that seek to prevent harm and neglect (including physical, sexual,
emotional, neglect, racial and cultural or religious abuse) all contribute to a child safe culture. It is therefore critical that child safety is part of the everyday thinking and practice of all within the school community.
All members of our community share the responsibility for keeping our students safe so if you have concerns for a child’s safety you must take action.  Please see our Child Safe Policy http://wgps.vic.edu.au/uploaded_files/media/1494831894childsafe.pdf and for further information & resources www.education.gov.au/protect
