Volunteer and Contractor Training

Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) is committed to keeping children safe at all places of learning.

We adhere to the National Catholic Safeguarding Standards and support the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations.

A range of checks and undertakings are required for people who work for or provide services to CEDP. These checks reduce potential risk and forms part of our strategy to build child safe communities.



In the Diocese of Parramatta we see parents as partners in your child's educational experience. Parents are encouraged to become involved in our schools in a variety of ways such as canteen helpers, coaches of sporting teams, supporting classroom learning, providing general assistance around the school and much much more.


Contractors may include architects, builders and tradespeople project managed by CEDP or services provided to students using CEDP rooms and equipment including music teachers, speech pathologists, canteen providers and repairs and maintenance workers, amongst others.
