Child Safe Community
Every child is entitled to be educated and cared for in a safe environment, and in a manner that optimises their opportunities to grow and develop to reach their full potential.
St Therese’s Catholic School operates under the Child Safe Framework. This Framework sets out the behavioural and system requirements necessary to guide child safety practices and procedures within Catholic education in Tasmania. The Framework can be accessed as part of the Child Safe Organisation Policy located on the Tasmanian Catholic Education Office website.
WORKING WITH VULNERABLE PEOPLE
St Therese’s Catholic School requires employees, volunteers and external providers engaged to work on school sites to hold Working with Vulnerable People registration. Working with Vulnerable People is a compulsory background check for many people who work or volunteer with children and vulnerable people in Tasmania.
All non-teaching employees and nominated volunteers within Catholic schools are required to take part in the Police Check process. Police checks are conducted every three years (maximum) or as required by changes in job/task responsibilities.
For more information please access the Working in Catholic Education section of the Tasmanian Catholic Education Office website.
