Child Safety and Wellbeing

We believe that ensuring the safety of students in our care is an integral part of who we are as a Catholic faith community. St John’s is committed to meeting the The Victorian Child Safe Standards as passed by the Victorian Parliament in 2015. St John’s implements this in accordance with Ministerial Order No: 870 in the development of its school Policies, staff training and ultimately, through the strategies used in dealing with the students and families within our school community.
