Child Protection


Child Protection Statement

Guildford Grammar School is committed to the care, safety and protection of all students and has a zero tolerance of child abuse.  All allegations and safety concerns will be treated seriously and consistently, in line with the School's robust policies and procedures.  Guildford Grammar School wants children to be safe, happy and empowered.  To protect the safety of the students in our care all members of the school community must adhere to our Child Protection Program and Policies.

Guildford Grammar School has worked closely with Child Wise, one of Australia's leading not-for-profit child abuse prevention organisations in the development of our Child Protection Program and policies, gaining accreditation as a Child Safer Organisation in 2015.

Guildford Grammar School recognises that efforts to prevent child abuse will only be effective when considering a child's safety and wellbeing holistically and our Child Protection policy not only focuses on the risks of abuse to children and young people, but how children's voices are heard.

Our Child Protection Program follows the 12 standards established by Child Wise to create and maintain a Child Safer Organisation.
 
  1. An open and aware culture

  3. Managing risk to minimize abuse
