Personal Items bought to school at owners risk

Personal property is often brought to school by students, staff and visitors. This can include mobile phones, calculators, toys, and sporting equipment.

If you child would be upset if their personal item was lost, stolen or broken then please keep the item at home.


The Department of Education and Training and Werribee Primary School do not have insurance for accidental injuries or accidental property damage.  However, in some circumstances, medical or other expenses will be paid by the Department where it is assessed that it is likely, in all the circumstances, that the Department is liable for negligent acts or omissions of its staff or volunteers.

For more information about the Department’s public liability claims process, please see: Negligence Claims Process.

Werribee Primary School encourages parents and carers to consider obtaining their own accident insurance for students and property of value that may be brought to school.
