Oxley Christian College has long held a strong focus on the safety and overall wellbeing of all students who attend the College, with our policies, procedures and guidelines supporting our consistent practices and enabling ongoing compliance with legislative requirements for a safe environment for children of all ages. To uphold our safe environment, and in accordance with the College ethos, the College has, therefore, further developed its strategies to enhance the culture of child safety at the College, which has led to the creation of several new documents relating to College practices, including the following:
- Child Safety and Wellbeing Policy; and
- Child Safe Code of Conduct; and
- Student Child Safe Program Code of Conduct; and
- Child Safety Reporting Process Guideline; and
- Child Safe Standards – Incident Report
All adults working at the College (including staff, volunteers, contractors, and homestay parents) will be required to abide by the Child Safe Policy and sign and comply with the Child Safe Code of Conduct. Copies of documents relating to the Child Safe Standards are located on our website under Publications.
Mr James Avram, Deputy Principal – Head of Senior School is the College Senior Child Safety Officer. The College has also appointed Pastor Matt Daly (College Chaplain) and Mrs Danielle Bruce (College Psychologist) as College Child Safety Officers, to assist both children and adults that may have concerns in relation to child abuse and child safety.
