Bendigo Senior Secondary College is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all young people. It is the primary focus of our care and decision-making. BSSC has developed a comprehensive policy that outlines the college’s approach to ensuring that all students are kept safe while at school.

Particular attention has been paid to the cultural safety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, those from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, LGBTI students, those with diverse religious beliefs, as well as the safety of young people with a disability or any challenge that may be recognised by others.

Bendigo Senior Secondary College has zero tolerance for child abuse. The school is also bound by mandatory reporting legislation that ensures any abuses that occur outside of the school can be followed up once staff are made aware. If you have any concerns, please approach a staff member or contact the Wellbeing Team. All such meetings are treated with strict confidentiality.

Bendigo Senior Secondary College is committed to providing a child safe environment where all young people are safe and feel safe.

Every person involved in Bendigo Senior Secondary College has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role each of us plays, individually and collectively, to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all young people is at the forefront of all we do and every decision we make.
