Our commitment to child safety
Our commitment to child safety

We are a proudly inclusive community, and student wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do at Carey.

Carey is committed to providing a child safe environment, acting in the best interests of children and their wellbeing at all times.

All students in our care should feel empowered to celebrate their identities, and our community affirms all students and their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, physical ability and religious beliefs.

‘At Carey, we adopt a whole-school approach to providing an environment of mutual respect, fairness, equity and justice. We believe that all students, staff, parents and alumni should be treated with dignity and respect and we seek to provide an environment that is safe, supportive, inclusive and free from discrimination so that their physical, emotional and intellectual needs can be nurtured and developed.’
– Carey Inclusivity Statement

Carey is committed to:

  • promoting child safety and student voice in its School environment
  • promoting the safety, wellbeing, participation and empowerment of all students in our care, taking into account students with a disability and children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • promoting cultural safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and children from other culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • a zero tolerance to child abuse
  • providing an environment where students feel encouraged to play an active role in developing a culture of child safety
  • implementing and continuously improving procedures and systems that promote and influence an organisational culture of child safety and that provide a safe environment for our students
  • providing staff, students, parents, and volunteers with the opportunities to contribute to risk minimisation and improve child safety.

All members of the Carey community, including students, staff, Board members, contractors, parents, guardians and volunteers share responsibility for providing an environment which supports the safety and wellbeing of Carey students, and are required to uphold the School’s commitment to student safety. Carey has child safety policies, procedures and reporting mechanisms in place that underpin this commitment.
