Child safety and wellbeing at Mill Park Heights Primary School: information for families and the school community
Mill Park Heights Primary School is committed to providing a child safe and child friendly environment, where students are safe and feel safe. In July 2022, the Child Safe Standards were improved to ensure the safety for all children and young people.
