A Child Safe Community

As part of the Sydney Catholic Schools (SCS) System of Catholic Schools, DLS Revesby Heights is dedicated to upholding the values and practices that create safe learning environments for students. SCS is committed to the vision of the National Safe Schools Framework (NSSF) that "all Australian schools are safe, supportive and respectful teaching and learning communities that promote student wellbeing".

"Child safe schools" refers to a more contemporary understanding of "child protection". It involves a proactive and holistic approach to ensure our School is a safe place for children in all aspects.

Sydney Catholic Schools has developed resources and documentation that support and maintains child safe schools.

Please see the Sydney Catholic Schools Child Safe Communities Website for more information.
