This school has a commitment to zero tolerance of child abuse.
We support and respect all children as well as our staff and volunteers.
We are committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, the cultural safety of children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and to providing a safe environment for children with a disability.
We want children at this school to be safe, happy and empowered.
We have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child’s safety, which we follow rigorously.
Every person involved in Ashwood High 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.
