Child Safeguarding Statement

Child Safeguarding Statement

This Child Safeguarding Statement relates to services offered by Technology for Education Solutions Pty Ltd ABN 13 615 445 951 T/A Lumination (‘The Company’) for children and young adults (‘Children/Child’).

We have zero tolerance of child abuse and are committed to creating a child safe environment both in-person and online. Children’s safety and wellbeing is paramount and Lumination recognises that it is important to create an environment where all children and young adults feel valued and safe.

Lumination empowers Children to find their voice and ensure that they are heard, respected and valued.

Clearances and Checks

All Employees must have a Working with Children Check or DHS/DCSI Child-Related Employment Check (as applicable as at the relevant date) before attending to any child-related activities.

Training and Development

Lumination Employees are provided with ongoing support and training to ensure they maintain child safe environments and know how to respond to harm or risk of harm. Continuous risk assessments of activities are conducted to ensure best practice.

As part of their induction process, new Employees receive copies of and understand our Child Safeguarding and Code of Conduct policies.

All Employees are required to complete the RRHAN-EC mandatory notification training (Fundamentals course). The RRHAN-EC assists Employees to better understand their duties in regards to mandatory reporting. Please refer to the RRHAN-EC website for more information.

Lumination Employees must abide by our PW003 : Child Safeguarding policy (currently under review) which specifies the standard of conduct required when working with children.

Respect Diversity

Lumination fosters inclusion and awareness around diversity and takes a culturally sensitive approach to our services. All Children are treated fairly, regardless of ethnicity, culture, sex, gender, social, economic, religion or ability.
