Child Safe


Cambridge PS is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making.

Cambridge PS strives to equip and empower life long learning that contribute collaboratively to build a positive, inclusive and successful school and community. Our four values of Respect, Integrity, Self-Resilience, and Excellence are taught explicitly within the classroom and across school settings and guide the decisions and behaviours of all members of our school community, including relation to child safety:

  • Respect – show care and concern for others
  • Integrity – be safe, honest, true, fair and considerate, take responsibility for your actions
  • Self-resilience – bouncing back from setback and having a growth mindset
  • Excellence – aiming high to be the very best we can

Cambridge PS has zero tolerance for child abuse.

We are 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. Our child safe policies, procedures, strategies and practices will be inclusive of the needs of all children, particularly Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, children with disabilities, students in out of home care, LGBTI students and children who are vulnerable.

Every person involved in Cambridge PS has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role they play 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.

In its planning, decision-making and operations, Cambridge PS will:

  • Take a preventative, proactive and participatory approach to child safety
  • Value and empower children to participate in decisions which affect their lives

  • Provide written guidance on appropriate conduct and behaviour towards children
