Engagement - Student Safety

“All members of the Lara Primary School community have the right to feel safe and be safe”

(Student Engagement Policy, 2012)

Students have the right to be safe at school. They also have the responsibility to keep others safe.
Our catch cry, “Think Safety” provides the foundations for maintaining a safe and happy school environment.

Everyone follows the school and classroom rules
Everyone follows the schoolyard rules
Everyone accepts the consequences of breaking the school, classroom and yard rules
Everyone allows others to participate
There are no putdowns
We do not cause others to be hurt
Everyone accepts responsibility for their actions and choices
We know we will not be embarrassed by others
We know we can communicate problems to others


All staff and parents/carers have a responsibility to uphold these expectations and to model positive and safe behaviours.

At Lara Primary School we take a preventative approach to student wellbeing and safety. The Student Engagement Policy outlines a number of prevention and early intervention strategies which help to address bullying, social relationship issues, cyber safety and general wellbeing.
