We strive to ensure that the welfare of the child is paramount, that their rights to access education are protected and that we identify any unmet needs and any risks of harm.
We seek to do this through the concept of parental responsibility and we actively engage parents to ensure that a child’s needs are met; enabling them to benefit from access to education. We work across children and adult services and also work to protect vulnerable adults within the criminal justice system and ensure that their rights are protected.
To act with integrity, fairness, compassion, positive attitude, and a consistent endeavour to respect the rights of others, co-workers, and those we serve. Be accountable to our community, and deliver excellent customer service. Seek to educate citizens; enforcing the law where appropriate; and building collaborative relationships with residents, businesses, education providers, community groups, and local government agencies. We will ensure measurable consistency of enforcement and responsiveness to complaints, provide comprehensive policies, work to the national occupational standards and compliance and provide the highest quality enforcement service to the community.
