All children have a right to feel safe, and be safe.
Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA) is committed to creating an environment where the safety, wellbeing, and participation of all children and young people is paramount. Additional focus is given to vulnerable children, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, as well as children with a disability.
We have zero tolerance of child abuse and all allegations and safety concerns are treated very seriously and consistent with our robust policies and procedures. EREA and its schools have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child’s safety, which we follow rigorously.
