Building Child Safe Communities

Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) is committed to keeping children safe at all our schools, Catholic Out of Schools Hours Care, Catholic Early Learning Centres and Trade Training Centres.


We adhere to the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards and support the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations.

A range of checks and undertakings are required for people who work for or provide services to CEDP. These checks reduce potential risk and forms part of our strategy to build child safe communities.

In the Diocese of Parramatta we see parents as partners in your child's educational experience. Parents are encouraged to become involved in our schools in a variety of ways such as canteen helpers, coaches of sporting teams, supporting classroom learning, providing general assistance around the school and much much more.

Contractors may include architects, builders and tradespeople project managed by CEDP or services provided to students using CEDP rooms and equipment including music teachers, speech pathologists, canteen providers and repairs and maintenance workers, amongst others.

We thank you for the important role you play in supporting the ongoing learning of our students and the opportunities you provide.

 

 


All contractors and volunteer workers in schools are required to undergo child protection training.
