Commitment to Child Safety

Caring & Safe Schools

Havergal works to develop a love of learning while guiding and challenging every student at all stages. The school is dedicated to the education of students in a safe and caring community that fosters the development of character, courage, creativity and a passion for learning. 

All students, parents, faculty and staff members have the right to be safe, and feel safe, in the Havergal community. With this right comes the responsibility to contribute to a positive school climate. The promotion of strategies and initiatives, along with the employment of prevention and intervention strategies to address inappropriate behaviour, fosters a positive climate that supports academic achievement for all students.

Our commitment to a Caring and Safe School is supported by policies and procedures that provide a framework supporting this work at the school. Parents can view these policies and procedures by logging in to the Parent & Student Portal.

If you have questions related to any of the policy and procedure documents or our approach to Caring and Safe Schools, please contact the appropriate Head of School.
