Making Australian schools safer

in Blogs

There is a growing awareness within Australia of the importance of safe learning environments in promoting social and academic outcomes for students.

Making Australian Schools Safer, written by Dr Helen McGrath, is a summary report of the outcomes of the National Safe Schools Framework Best Practice grants program.

The grants program was managed by the Alannah & Madeline Foundation on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Education, Science and Training. The program provided grants to schools to initiate projects that improve student wellbeing.

Making Australian Schools Safer outlines projects undertaken by schools, the outcomes and key issues. It provides six guiding principles for success in developing and maintaining safe school environments. These principles encourage schools to support innovative and effective approaches to achieve a safe school environment for both staff and students.
