They help to shape our relationships with children and young people, families, care-givers and colleagues to be authentic and caring without placing children, young people and yourself at risk. Maintaining appropriate personal, professional and protective boundaries and behaviours helps keep children and young people safe from harm and reduces the risk of allegations of harm. Our Code of Conduct provides Standards and Guidelines regarding expected conduct, including examples of the practical application of the Standards to maintain appropriate boundaries.

People engaged to act with the actual or apparent authority of an Anglican School of Education and Care Service must adhere to the Code of Conduct.  This includes:
