AIA Strathfield School
Australian International Academy has zero tolerance for child abuse and is committed to the protection of all children and young people from all forms of child abuse.
The School is committed to providing education and care to children and young people to assist them to develop into high-achieving, supported students, positively connected to each other and to the communities in which they live and which they will serve.
The School is committed to ensuring the safety, welfare and wellbeing of all children and young people at the School and is dedicated to protecting them from abuse and harm.
We have a zero tolerance for child abuse. The School regards its child protection responsibilities with the utmost importance, and as such is committed to providing the necessary resources to ensure compliance with all relevant child protection laws and regulations and to maintain safe and supportive School physical and online environments for all children and young people.
The School has developed a Statement of Commitment to Child Safety which is available on the website which is the Academy's overarching statement that provides key elements of our approach to protecting children and young people from abuse and sets the tone for the School’s entire Child Protection Program.
The School has also developed a Child Safety Code of Conduct which applies to all staff, parents, students, visitors and external contractors and lists behaviours that are acceptable and those that are unacceptable. It provides a high-level statement of professional boundaries, ethical behaviour and acceptable and unacceptable relationships.
When individuals are clear about behavioural expectations, they are much more likely to act appropriately with each other, and with children and young people.
