Child Safety

At Ashwood School we consider all children and young people's health, safety, and well-being to be our highest priority. We strive to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children and young people at our school at all times. We have zero-tolerance for child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated seriously and consistently. We are committed to creating a safe, respectful and inclusive school environment where all students can be happy, confident and resilient, regardless of their sexual or gender identity, cultural background disability or other circumstances. We take account of all children's diversity, including the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, children with disabilities and vulnerable children.
