Commitment to the Cultural Safety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students

Woodleigh School values and respects the cultural diversity of our students and is committed to ensuring that the backgrounds of all students are sensitively recognised, catered for, celebrated and valued so that cultural differences do not compromise students’ safety and wellbeing.

In particular, the School recognises the importance of every Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student feeling that their sense of self and identity is valued by the people and environments that surround them. Cultural identity and cultural safety are fundamental to a student’s overall wellbeing and sense of safety.

Collection Notices

Child Safety Officers (CSO)

The School has appointed Child Safety Officers across all of our campuses. They are provided annually with specialised training on child protection issues, mandatory reporting and their legal obligations. In working with all school staff and volunteers, they are known within our School as Child Safety Officers (CSO) to raise the importance, profile and facilitate the embedding of a culture of child safety. Our Child Safety Officers are often the first point of contact for all staff, students, parents and carers to raise child safety or child abuse concerns. They work collaboratively with the Child Safety Champion to ensure all concerns of child safety and child abuse are escalated, reported and responded.

Our Child Safety Officers can be contacted at any time to discuss your concerns and their name and contact details are provided regularly in our communications.
