Mordialloc College staff and students share and proudly demonstrate the following four core values which we believe lay the foundation for our future success
Work to the best of your ability. Pursue excellence, try hard and constantly seek to improve.
Be true to yourself by doing what is right. Be honest and trustworthy.
Treat everyone with equal consideration. Be accepting of others and their differences.
Be accountable for your actions. Contribute positively to the school and wider community.

Our mission is to provide a stimulating learning environment where all students feel safe and supported to succeed in a wide range of opportunities and pathways. Our students will become confident, successful, and invested members of our community and beyond.
MORDIALLOC COLLEGE SHARED AGREEMENTS
We Expect The Following From Our Students
Mordialloc College policies set out the school’s views, procedures and rules.
They provide a useful operational reference and describe the activities or processes that are to be followed to complete a task or function in a correct and consistent manner.
Our aim is to provide a consistent framework for actions that help to streamline activities, avoid potential hurdles and take account of foreseeable circumstances in an efficient, respectful and legally responsible manner. It is expected that all students and members of the school community adhere to the College Code of Conduct and the school rules and policies that are set out in the documents listed below.
We encourage parents to review these procedures and discuss the implications and responsibilities with their children where they deem it necessary.
All procedures, measures, and practices have been developed in accordance with Ministerial Order No 870 – Child Safe Standards – Managing the risk of child abuse in schools. Mordialloc College is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making. Mordialloc College has zero tolerance for child abuse. Mordialloc College is committed to providing a child-safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives.
Particular attention will be paid to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, LGBTI children, as well as the safety of children with a disability. Every person involved in Mordialloc College has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role he/she plays individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make.
All staff, volunteers and board members of Mordialloc College are required to observe child safe principles and expectations for appropriate behaviour towards and in the company of children as mandated by our child safety policy in accordance with Ministerial Order 870. The code of conduct and policy applies in all school situations, including school camps and in the use of digital technology and social media, embedding and underpinning Risk Management Approach, Human Resources Practice and Promoting participation and empowerment of children.
