Child Safety

From February 2023, all organisations working with children must comply with Child Safe Standards under the Children’s Guardian Act. As a child safe school, ensuring the safety and well-being of our students is a responsibility we take very seriously, and we have a number of comprehensive policies in place to support this commitment.

Working Party

The College Child Safe Working Party commenced in 2022 to extend current works in Child Safety and is continuing to work on improving Child Safety at the College.

Feedback Options

Students with concerns may talk with staff at the College including: Classroom Teacher, Pastoral Care Teacher, Well Being Staff or Counsellors.

For anonymous feedback, a letterbox is provided within the Student Services area.

A Wellbeing Student Incident Report is also available on the Student Dashboard in which a student can leave their name or remain anonymous. Please also refer to the Child Safety Complaints Handling Policy.

Child Safe Consultation

As the College progresses it’s Child Safe improvement plan, we encourage all staff, students, parents and the College community to provide feedback and drive change within this area.

Please direct emails to

Child Safe Posters

To continue providing a safe and respectful culture at the College, staff, students and the College community were introduced to a range of Child Safe posters in 2023. These posters have been designed in collaboration with staff and students to better provide information when students need help or feel unsafe. 

The posters are designed to meet the needs of the different age groups at the College and have been placed strategically around the College.
