Child Safe Policy
Cathedral College Wangaratta is committed to child safety and has zero tolerance of child abuse. Our Child Safe policy outlines the specific policies, procedures and training that support children, staff and volunteers. We are working with children, families, staff and volunteers to ensure everyone knows what to do and who to tell if they notice inappropriate behaviour, observe abuse or are a victim.
See our Child Safe Policy (below) for more information about the practices and procedures we have in place to protect the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.
Working with Children Check
The Working with Children Check helps protect children from physical and sexual harm. It does this by screening people’s criminal records and professional conduct, and by preventing those who pose an unjustifiable risk to children from working with or caring for them.
All adults engaged in child-related work at Cathedral College Wangaratta including contractors and volunteers, are required to hold a Working with Children Check and to provide evidence of this Check to the College. The College will maintain a Working with Children Register; please nominate Cathedral College Wangaratta as an organisation that you volunteer with. To find out whether you need to apply for this Check please download the attached PDF below or follow the link to the Working with Children Check website.
