Our charter

This Charter is a commitment from all our staff and students that our school is a safe creative space to work in. It extends to our sets, locations, our classrooms and includes all interactions, including in person, phone-calls, texts and online.

It is a living document that will evolve and progress to meet the needs of the school, its staff and students.

We believe:

  • Our creativity is strengthened by contribution from people of all walks of Australian life.
  • Everyone should have the opportunity to develop and contribute their skills.
  • It is all of our responsibility to ensure these opportunities exist, and to remove obstacles to participation.
  • Leadership in creative practice requires ongoing learning.
  • Without the knowledge that we are safe, we cannot be bold or daring.

We commit to:

  • Share our knowledge generously.
  • Ensure a diversity of content and ideas in our teaching, work and films.
  • Foster a culture that supports the pursuit of creative excellence free from any physical or psychological harm.
  • Work in ways that support participation.
  • Communicate clear processes for addressing problems.
  • Appoint support officers.
  • Maintain confidentiality where required.
  • Ensure consequences for breaches of the charter.
  • Maintain a zero-tolerance approach to behaviour that is discriminatory, bullying or harassment.
