Policies & Information
As well as providing quality of service and care to all of our students, we at SCDEC believe the following principles are integral to the careful planning and administration of our school:
Values are an integral part of school management and, teaching and learning. The core values espoused at SCDEC include:
Being impartial and using power fairly for the common good.
- Respect for Persons
Being honest, and treating people courteously, so that they maintain their dignity and their rights are upheld.
- Responsible Care
Protecting and managing with care the human, natural and financial resources of the school.
We have a positive approach to learning and encourage it in others; we advance student learning based on our belief that all students have the capacity to learn.
We have high expectations of our students and of ourselves. We set standards of excellence and strive to achieve them. The standards and high expectations challenge all of us to always give our best.
We recognise the differing circumstances and needs of our students and are dedicated to achieving the best possible outcomes for all. We strive to ensure a workplace and learning environment that is free of discrimination, abuse or exploitation.
We treat all individuals with care. Our relationships are based on trust, mutual respect and the acceptance of responsibility. We recognise the value of working in partnership with parents, carers and the wider community in providing a quality education for our students.
