New Child Safe Code of Conduct

The Adelaide Youth Orchestras as part of its ongoing commitment to creating child-safe environments, AdYO has adopted a new Child Safe Code of Conduct for Employees and Volunteers.

THE ADELAIDE YOUTH ORCHESTRAS CODE OF CHILD SAFE CONDUCT FOR EMPLOYEES & VOLUNTEERS

Do:

  • Treat everyone with respect and honesty (this includes staff, volunteers, students, children, young people, parents and caregivers).
  • Remember to be a positive role model to children in all your conduct with them.
  • Set clear boundaries about appropriate behaviour between yourself and the children in your organisation – boundaries help everyone to carry out their roles well.
  • Follow organisational policy and guidelines for the safety of children as outlined in AdYO’s Child Safe Policy.
  • Always have another adult present or in sight when conducting one to one coaching, instruction etc.
  • Raise any concerns, problems or issues with management as soon as possible.
  • Record and act on complaints of abuse.

Do not:

  • Engage in rough physical games, including horseplay.
  • Develop any ‘special’ relationships with children that could be seen as favouritism such as the offering of gifts or special treatment.
  • Become involved with things of a personal nature that a child can do for themselves, such as going to the toilet or changing clothes.
