Student Protection

Canterbury supports the rights of children and young people and is committed to ensuring the safety, welfare and wellbeing of students.

This commitment is embedded in the College’s organisational leadership, governance, and culture. It also includes the provision of a safe and supportive learning environment for all students and requires all employees, volunteers and visitors to model and encourage behaviour that upholds the dignity and protection of students from harm.

Canterbury is committed to responding to allegations of student harm resulting from the conduct or actions of any person including that of employees.

In support of this commitment, the College is dedicated to its Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy, which includes having relevant policies, procedures and training in place to effectively address the safety and wellbeing of students in their care.
