Behaviour and Safety

Behaviour
Every child can have a bad day and our programs won’t always hit the mark for a particular child on any particular day.
After all the usual attempts for a win – win have been exhausted, the team leader will make the decision to go find the parents.

We will do our best to ensure our programs are engaging, relational, cater to a range of ages, learning styles and preferred spiritual pathways.

In saying that our programs are designed and leaders are trained for mainstream behaviour.

We are keen to work with parents for more challenging behaviour and higher needs. We want to be inclusive as possible, at the same time balancing the learning needs of everyone and the capacity of our volunteers. Generally speaking when we work together we can tackle most needs.

Safety
Safety is paramount  – spiritual, emotional and physical just to name a few.  We work hard to keep Sunday school a secure and safe environment for everyone and regularly train our volunteers and staff accordingly.

Key Safety Points:

  • A sign in process is important in case of emergency or if a parent of a preschooler is needed during the service.
  • Children are not released until parents return for them at the end of the service.
  • We sometimes take photos and videos of groups of children to update our Facebook page.  Please let us know if you do not want your child in these photos.
  • Our staff are first aid trained and will be the first response in an emergency.
  • Children are taken to toilet by a leader and other children to make sure everyone is safe.
  • Our gatherings are open to the public so parents need to take responsibility for their children accordingly before and after the services.

 

Church should be a fun and safe environment for our children to flourish.  If you notice something that looks concerning or is a potential safety risk please contact us.
