Statement of Commitment

Anglican Schools and Education & Care Services are committed to providing environments where children and young people receive the highest standard of care, where their rights are supported, and they have the opportunity to thrive and be fruitful. Such environments nurture and safeguard the intelligence, dignity, safety, and wellbeing of each child or young person, by placing them at the centre of thought, values, and actions.

As reflected in our Ethos, our vocation is education, driven by a vision of humanity, shaped by the image of God made visible in Jesus, present in every human being.

  • Every child: made in the image and likeness of God.
  • Every child: loveable and loved, unique and unrepeatable.
  • Outstanding education for the flourishing of people and the good of the 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 sustainable 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.
