Child Safe School

John Monash Science School is a Child Safe School. We have a zero tolerance stance on child abuse and are committed to the protection of all children from all forms of abuse. We are clear about our behavioural expectations of every person in our community.

Our Policy and Code of Conduct are made available to all staff, students, families, volunteers, contractors, suppliers and the wider community.

Our school program contains the Child Protection and Safety Policy and Child Safety Code of Conduct which provides a high-level statement of professional boundaries and ethical behaviour, as well as acceptable and unacceptable relationships.
