Statement of Commitment to Child Safety
Our commitment to providing a child-safe, child-friendly environment
All children and young people who come to Arden have a right to feel and be safe. We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. We are committed to providing a child-safe and child-friendly environment, where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and are able to actively participate in decisions that affect their lives.
We have zero tolerance for child abuse and other harm, and we are committed to acting in students’ best interests and keeping them safe from harm.
The School regards its child protection responsibilities with the utmost importance, and is committed to providing the necessary resources to ensure compliance with all relevant child protection laws and regulations, and the maintenance of a child-safe culture.
Each member of the School community has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role that they play, individually and collectively, to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all students is at the forefront of all that they do, and every decision that they make.
