Northside Christian College is currently reviewing a wide range of policy documents in order to strengthen our operations at the College. We are committed to developing sound policies and procedures across our wellbeing programs, education programs and our overall operations.
During 2017, the College has updated the Visitors to the College Policy (Policy No. 32). The goal of this policy is to provide a safe and secure environment for all members of the College community and the resources of the College. The College aims to establish protocols and procedures that effectively monitor and manage visitors, whilst not compromising the open and inviting nature of our College culture.
All visitors will be required to report to the College Office prior to undertaking any activity within the College, where they will be required to sign a “Visitors Book” and will be assigned a “Visitors” badge which they must wear at all times within the College. Similarly, visitors will be required to report to the College Office at the end of their visit to return their badge and to “sign out” in the Visitors Book. Parents are requested to sign in as visitors for College Chapels, assemblies and other visits to the College outside of student drop-off and collection.
In order to strengthen our culture of child safety, we request that no photos of children will be permitted without the approval of the appropriate parents / guardians. The College will aim to provide an opportunity at special events for photo taking. This will be facilitated in a way to respect the wishes of families who may not want their children to be photographed.
Northside Christian College is committed to developing policies and procedures to create and maintain a child safe school environment. Child safety encompasses matters related to protecting all children from child abuse, managing the risk of child abuse, providing support to a child at risk of child abuse, and responding to incidents or allegations of child abuse. A variety of policies are in place to demonstrate the College’s commitment to child safety.
A copy of the updated Visitors to the College Policy document will be posted to the College website in the near future.
