Outstanding education for the flourishing of people and the good of community.
Our faith is lived. We are hospitable and welcoming communities, who embody compassion, kindness,
fairness, justice and love, and where exceptional pastoral care is practiced.

Working and serving the best interests of children and young people is in everyone’s best interest. This is
achieved through sustaining living and learning environments that are safe, supportive and
stimulating. Specifically, we:

place emphasis on genuine engagement with children and young people;

create conditions that reduce the likelihood of harm to children and young people;
create conditions that increase the likelihood of identifying harm where it exists; and

respond swiftly and appropriately to any concerns, disclosures, allegations or suspicions.
This commitment is sought to be consistently reflected through the decisions and behaviour of all persons
within the School or Service, who are guided by effective governance, policies, tools and processes. This
fosters a child safe culture, where acting in children and young people’s best interests is at the heart of
what we do.
