Child Safe Community

Every child is entitled to be educated, and cared for, in a safe environment, and in a manner that optimises their opportunities to grow and develop to reach their full potential.

St Therese’s Catholic School operates under the Child Safe Framework. This Framework sets out the behavioural and system requirements necessary to guide child safety practices and procedures within Catholic education in Tasmania. The Framework can be accessed as part of the Child Safe Organisation Policy located on the Catholic Education Tasmanian website.


St Therese’s Catholic School requires employees, volunteers and external providers engaged to work on our school site to hold Working with Vulnerable People registration. Working with Vulnerable People is a compulsory background check for any people who work or volunteer with children and vulnerable people in Tasmania.


All teaching and non-teaching employees, as well as nominated volunteers, within Catholic schools are required to take part in the National Police Check process. Police checks are conducted every three years (maximum) or as required by changes in job/task responsibilities.

For more information please access the Working in Catholic Education section of the Catholic Education Tasmanian website.
