Keeping our students safe

We’re proud to be a safe and caring community with our own Health Clinic Team, Child Safety Specialists and a proactive approach.

A warm welcome from our Director of Child Safety

Here at WellSpring we believe every child has a right to be protected from harm and maltreatment, and that everyone has a responsibility to support the protection of children.

We work to provide an environment where students are safe from all forms of abuse and where students can get help if they experience harm.

We seek to do this through safe recruitment practices; child safety policies and code of conduct (see below); regular training in child safety for all our staff, volunteers, and students; and two staff members in each school who are designated the role of Child Safety Specialist.

Our Child Safety Specialists raise awareness around child safety in the school and undertake extra training to be able to respond to any concerns raised. They can be contacted through

To raise a child safety concern with us, whether historic or current, you can email or use the form below. All information you submit will remain confidential.
