A CULTURE OF SAFETY AT ALL SAINTS’ COLLEGE
All Saints’ College believes that the safety of our students is paramount. The College values children and understands that purposeful planning and action must take place to ensure the safety of children. It balances a safety focus with positive interactions and environments that contribute to the healthy development of children.
The College takes action to protect children from physical, sexual, emotional, psychological and cultural abuse and neglect. This commitment by the College is embedded in its culture, and responsibility for taking action is understood and accepted at all levels of the school.
The College deliberately and systematically:
- creates conditions that reduce the likelihood of harm occurring
- creates conditions that increase the likelihood of any harm being discovered
- responds appropriately to any disclosures, allegations or suspicions of harm
A Child Safe Organisation
As a child safe organisation, All Saints’ College:
- takes a preventative, proactive and participatory stance on child protection issues
- promotes a child safe environment as the main consideration in all of its activities and management practices
- embeds child safety in its culture and ensures it is understood at all levels of the organisation
- is maintained by a dynamic process of learning, monitoring and reviewing
- builds child safe and child friendly environments
- understands that the participation of children is fundamental
Building a Child Safe and Friendly Culture
The College has adopted the ‘Child Safe Organisations WA Guidelines’ to establish a framework around which to build a child safe and friendly culture. Creating and maintaining a safe and friendly organisation is a dynamic and ongoing process of learning, monitoring and reviewing processes and practices that affect the safety of young people within the College. The structure required to build a child safe and friendly culture is organised into nine domains, the seventh of which is ‘child friendly complaint process and reporting’.
Child Friendly Complaint Process & Reporting
Children and young people of all ages and abilities need to feel empowered and supported to raise any concerns they have and need to feel confident that staff and volunteers will do something about their concerns. Oversight of informal and formal concerns from all stakeholders includes analysis of issues and actions to address these.
At All Saints’ College we action this commitment in a number of ways inclusive of, but not limited to, the following examples:
- Clear procedures and structures exist for staff, volunteers, families, children and young people to provide feedback, raise concerns or make formal complaints
- All concerns from children and young people, staff, family and community members are taken seriously and acted upon
- The College Values of Respect, Integrity and Courage guide our handling of feedback, concerns or complaints and our relationships with others
- The College’s pastoral care structure provides pathways and multiple people, with whom trusting relationships are developed, to hear and take seriously any feedback, concerns or complaints
- Adults with roles in the pastoral care structure for children and young people are proactive about providing care and support
If you have anything to add or wish to comment on the way that this child safe domain is addressed at the College, please contact the Dean of Student Wellbeing, Mr Tim Russell, at the College by email [email protected].
