College Values

Doveton College recognises the importance of the partnership between the College and parents to support children and young people’s learning, engagement and wellbeing. We share a commitment to, and a responsibility for, ensuring inclusive, safe and orderly environments for all children and young people.

This Statement of Values sets out our behavioural expectations of all members in this school community, including the leadership team, all college staff, parents, children and young people, our agency partners and visitors.

It respects the diversity of individuals in our college community and addresses the shared responsibilities of all members in building a safe and respectful community.

Discrimination, sexual and other forms of harassment, bullying, violence, aggression and threatening behaviour are unacceptable and will not be tolerated in this college.

Our Statement of Values acknowledges that parents and college staff are strongly motivated to do their best for every child. Everyone has the right to differing opinions and views and to raise concerns, as long as we do this respectfully as a community working together.

These values identified in the picture above are the basis for how our values are communicated and enacted within the College. In every classroom, and all major office spaces, posters of our core values are displayed and refered to in the students everyday lessons.
