Our school community recognises the importance of, and a responsibility for, ensuring our school is a safe, supportive and enriching environment which respects and fosters the dignity and self-esteem of children and young people, and enables them to thrive in their learning and development.

At Langley Primary  School we have a zero tolerance for child abuse and are committed to acting in children’s best interests and keeping them safe from harm. The School regards it’s child protection responsibilities with the utmost importance and as such, is committed to providing the necessary resources to ensure compliance with all relevant child protection laws and regulations and maintain a child safe culture. Please refer to our Child Safe Standards policy and code of conduct below.

 

Parent Access to the School

School security is paramount for student safety and for this reason parents are required to enter the School via the General Office where they will be asked to sign in.  

 

Working with Children Checks

Working With Children Checks are required for visitors and volunteers in schools. As a result, any parent or carer who wishes to attend an excursion and supervise a group of students (e.g. visiting the zoo, museum, Scienceworks, etc) will need to provide the school with a Volunteer Working With Children Check and to sign a Code of Conduct declaration. Obviously, the primary duty of care always falls to our teachers. Working with children's checks for volunteers are free. To apply visit: ww.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au.  These checks aren’t required for parents who attend sessions such as Parent Helpers program as activities such as this are exempt under the guidelines. If you have any questions or need assistance, please see the principal.
