Policies are important to ensure that all community members understand what is expected of them and what they can expect from the College. Many guiding principles are explained in our policies, including those relating to legal and ethical protection requirements, and safety guidelines.

Community Expectations, Rights and Responsibilities

The Community Expectations Agreement for Adults is framed to reflect the goals of the College’s strategic statement. It provides parameters for staff, parent, guardian and volunteer interactions with other members of the College community. The ELTHAM College Rights, Responsibilities and Expectations poster communicates conduct expectations for students and others, and is displayed throughout the College.

Child Safe Standards

ELTHAM College is committed to child safety, and uphold the Child Safe Standards and Ministerial Order #1359. We want all our students to be safe, happy and empowered. We support and respect all students and have zero tolerance of child abuse. 

Below is a list of Policies available for download.

The College welcomes community feedback on our child safe policies and practices, and invites families to contact the Deputy Principal (Child Safety Officer and Child Safe Standards Champion) with feedback, suggestions or concerns.
