Mercy Education has a zero tolerance for all forms of child abuse and an over-arching commitment to ensure that its students are safe and secure while fostering their growth in a faith-centred community. Child safety and wellbeing are at the core of its mission and operations and its schools promote safe, inclusive and welcoming learning environments. Mercy Education facilitates and oversees the implementation of child safety policies and codes of conduct across all its schools and throughout the organisation, in accordance with relevant state legislation, federal legislation and diocesan regulations.
Our policies are key elements of Mercy Education’s overall commitment to child safety and can be found on our Policies page.
Mercy schools also have their own child safety policies, procedures and systems which are consistent with the governance provided by Mercy Education.
