Our Values

The Cornish College educational philosophy is based around a vision for the whole community of sustainable living.

Cornish College’s core values are; respect, compassion, integrity and creativity.

The College strives to encourage creativity and develop thinking skills. It places strong emphasis on building a foundation of skills for learning through structured inquiry and a differentiated curriculum to cater for different learning styles. Children and staff work together to collaborate in a team structure.

Child safety

Cornish College is committed to the child safety. All children at the College should feel safe, happy and empowered.

Our commitments:

  • Cornish College has zero tolerance of child abuse, and we treat all allegations and safety concerns seriously.
  • We are committed to preventing child abuse, identifying risks early and removing or reducing these risks.
  • We are committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, the cultural safety of children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and to providing a safe environment for children with a disability.
  • We are committed to our legal and moral obligation to contact authorities when a concern is raised about a child’s safety.

Our actions:

  • Our Child Safe policy outlines the specific policies, procedures and training that support children, staff and volunteers.
  • We are working with children, families, staff and volunteers to ensure everyone knows what to do and who to tell if they notice inappropriate behavior, observe abuse or are a victim.
  • We have a responsibility to report abuse if there is a reasonable belief that an incident took place.

See our Child Safe Policy for more information about the practices and procedures we have in place to protect the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.
