We are a Child Safe School

The Learning Co-operative is committed to promoting child safety, children's wellbeing and protecting children from abuse. Ministerial Order 870 requires the Learning Co-operative to implement child safety standards and to accommodate and take the needs of all children (including but not limited to, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, children with disabilities, and children who are vulnerable) into account when creating a child safe environment. All staff and parent volunteers must comply with the Learning Co-operative child safety policies and related policies and procedures, uphold the overarching principles and values set out, and take all reasonable steps to promote the safety of children.
