St John’s primary School has a commitment to the care, safety, and wellbeing of all students at our school. We are committed to complying with Ministerial Order No. 1359 and following the Victorian Child Safe Standards.
St John’s Primary School is entrusted, in partnership with parents/guardians/caregivers who are the primary educators of their children, with the total education of the child. Our school staff have a duty of care to students during school operating hours and at other times when a staff/student relationship exists. Staff fulfil this duty by taking reasonable care to avoid acts or omissions which they can reasonably foresee would be likely to result in harm or injury to the student.

As their child’s first and primary educators, parent support and involvement is critical to their child's academic and personal development. Evidence shows that when parents are actively involved in their child's education, children tend to:
Achieve higher grades and test scores
Attend school more regularly
Have better social skills and behavior
Show a more positive attitude towards school
Are more resilient when learning is difficult
There are many ways that parents can support and be involved in their child's education at St John’s, including:
Attending parent-teacher conferences and meetings
Volunteering in the classroom or to help with school events
Supporting their child's learning at home by reading with their child or discussing and supporting what they are learning at school
Encouraging their child to be actively involved in their own education by setting goals, monitoring progress, and advocating for their own needs
By being supportive and involved in their child's education, parents can also strengthen their relationship with their child and develop a better understanding of their child's strengths, challenges, and interests. This can be especially important for parents who may not have had the opportunity to pursue higher education themselves, as it can help them to better support and encourage their child's learning and development.

Thank you in advance for your contribution towards improving our school.
