Policies are important to ensure that all community members understand what is expected of them and what they can expect from the College. Many guiding principles are explained in our policies, including those relating to legal and ethical protection requirements, and safety guidelines.
Community Expectations Agreement for Adults
The Community Expectations Agreement for Adults is framed to reflect the goals of the College’s strategic statement. It provides parameters for staff, parent, guardian and volunteer interactions with other members of the College community.
Child Safe Standards
As a result of the Betrayal of Trust Report handed down in 2013, new government legislation has been implemented that require all schools to communicate their child safe policy and demonstrate how they will actively embed a culture of child safety across their community. The full details of these requirements were presented in Ministerial Order Number 870 and are collectively referenced to as the Child Safe Standards.
