Child Safe Information
St. Jude’s prides itself on maintaining a positive child safe culture – child safety is the responsibility of everyone in our community. Our child safety code of conduct and policy clearly articulate what is expected of both visitors and community members – we have a zero tolerance of any behaviours that put children at risk or cause harm.

Recruitment Policy Staff
All teachers employed are required to have Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) registration and, as part of that registration, they are required to apply for a Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC). In view of the broader NCCHC, teachers are exempt from a Working with Children Check (WWCC). All other non-teaching staff and volunteers are required to apply for a WWCC.
All staff and volunteers are instructed about the school’s child safety policies, and are expected to comply with the school’s understanding of a child protection culture and minimisation of the risk of child abuse. Staff and volunteers are provided with appropriate training and development opportunities as well as ongoing supervision and management to ensure their conduct is consistent with the school’s child safety and wellbeing policies and procedures.
