Child Safety

Central to the mission of St. John Vianney’s is an explicit commitment to providing a safe and supportive environment where the emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual and physical wellbeing of our students is a priority.

All students enrolled at Our School have the right to feel safe and be safe. The wellbeing of children in our care will always be our priority, and we have zero tolerance of child abuse. 

We aim to create a child-safe and child-friendly environment where children are free to enjoy life to the full without any concern for their safety.


St. John Vianney’s will always be abreast of current legislation and ensure that these legislative requirements are always met. This duty of care towards our young people includes St. John Vianney’ s adherence towards the Victorian Child Safe Standards and Principles. These standards aim to drive cultural change, so that protecting children from abuse is embedded in everyday thinking and practice.

St. John Vianney School is a school which operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS). MACS governs and operates 292 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them. Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures. More information on MACS is available at
