School Policies

Children have the right to be safe and protected, including at school. Mount Alexander College is, and always has been, committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people.  We see this as our legal and moral obligation.

As a child safe school committed to zero tolerance for child abuse, we welcome and are enthusiastically meeting the new child safe standards mandated by the Victorian Government to further protect children.

The school policies provide a framework for all students to feel that they are in a safe learning environment that respects and tolerates the diverse community. The policies are a strategic link between the day to day operations of the school, our values and our vision.


Child Protection Policy

Child Safety Code of Conduct Policy

Privacy Policy

Council Documents

The Mount Alexander College reports and plans are approved and ratified by the School Council. The council is the legally constituted body that oversees and is responsible for the school’s policies, finances and strategic plans.


The subcommittees meet once a month and report to the School Council. The subcommittees are made up of staff and parents. It is a great opportunity for parents to get involved with some of the decision making at the school, and for any parents who have any expertise in these area to be able to share that with the school in a constructive way.

The current subcommittees are:

  • Finance
  • Education
  • Grounds and buildings

Contact the General Office if you would like to join any of the subcommittees. New members are always welcome.
