Our Child Safety Policy

Acacia is committed to Child Safety

Our organisation is committed to the safety of all children, staff, students and families in our organisation.
Acacia has zero tolerance for child abuse.

Acacia is committed to providing a child safe environment where all children and staff are safe, empowered and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Close attention will be paid to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children, the cultural safety of children from a culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and to providing a safe environment for children with a disability.

Every person involved in Acacia has a responsibility to understand the importance and specific role he/she plays individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children is at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make.

Child safety and wellbeing is embedded in our daily educational program. This done through:

  • Raising awareness through discussion
  • Teach children about all aspects of safety
  • Using correct terminology to label body parts
  • Being available for children to express their feelings emotions (fears and concerns)
