Child Safety and Wellbeing
Regent College is a child safe organisation and seeks to always uphold the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations (Australian Human Rights Commission) in order to create a culture, adopt strategies and take action to promote child wellbeing and prevent harm to children and young people.
Zones of Regulation
Recognising and regulating our feelings.
Regent College uses the Zones of Curriculum curriculum in all classes.
The curriculum comprises lessons and activities to equip students with skills in the area of regulation and emotional control.
Keeping Safe Curriculum
The Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum (KS:CPC)
KS:CPC is a respectful relationship and child safety curriculum that teaches all children and young people they have the right to be safe and they can help themselves to be safe by talking to people they trust. Teacher’s at Regent College are trained to teach this curriculum throughout the year. All schools in Western Australia are required to teach a Child Protection Curriculum.
Be You is the national mental health in education initiative delivered by Beyond Blue, in collaboration with Early Childhood Australia and headspace.
In 2020 Regent College began a partnership with BeYou which saw all students participate in a mental health survey.
Regent is committed to safeguarding and promoting the safety, welfare and wellbeing of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
All volunteers and helpers are required to complete an induction with the Principal and sign a Volunteer Declaration Form prior to volunteering or helping in the College. The declaration form is available via the visitor management system in the Administration Office.
Physical safety is of great importance.
The College is surrounded by fences and lockable gates which are locked during school hours.
Facilities are constantly monitored by all staff members and maintenance completed promptly by our on-site maintenance team.
Regent College staff complete a First Aid and Mental Health First Aid. In addition to these courses, staff complete training in other specific medical conditions such as diabetes and asthma each year.
