Commitment to Child Safety
Nepean School is committed to safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This commitment underpins all our care and decision making.
Nepean School has zero tolerance for any and all forms of child abuse, including sexual abuse, emotional and/or psychological abuse, physical abuse, neglect including medical neglect and/or non-compliance.
Nepean School is committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Particular attention will be paid to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children, children in out of home care, children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, as well as the safety of children with a disability.
Every person involved in Nepean 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.
