CESC is committed to the practices and values surrounding child safety. 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.

Happy 2019 and welcome to Cranbourne East Secondary College, where we share a common moral purpose: “Giving every student every opportunity to exceed their potential by providing a high-quality pathway to success.”

Cranbourne East Secondary College is a state-of-the-art school which is supported by an innovative curriculum that meets the individual needs of every student. The school places high expectations on academic growth, achievement and student behavior.

 At CESC, we have high expectations for all students to learn and achieve personal growth and success.  Engagement with the community and promotion of diversity are valued at CESC. Our staff provide excellent learning environments that are safe, engaging and stimulating, and which promote individual wellbeing as an essential ingredient for achieving educational success. CESC is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all students and young people. Our school’s child safety standards take into account the diversity of all children, including the needs of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander students, and students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, including children with disabilities and vulnerable children.

The College promotes very clear expectations for learning, attendance, behaviour, uniform and technology use; we expect these to be adhered to always. These high expectations reinforce the importance of everyone contributing in a positive manner when at school and in the community.

We endeavour to promote an atmosphere of mutual respect, understanding and co-operation which is underpinned by our new College values:

  • Respect
  • Personal Growth and Achievement
  • Responsibility

Cranbourne East Secondary 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. Cranbourne East Secondary College has zero tolerance for child abuse.

Cranbourne East Secondary 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 Cranbourne East Secondary 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.

Our dedicated staff work with students and their families to develop pathways and goals relevant to each student’s interests, skills, and aspirations. Our staff are committed, highly skilled teachers who encourage students to build positive and individual identities, helping them to develop the confidence and self-esteem that leads to individual learning success. Our staff support students to become self-assured young adults ready to pursue their interests, hopes and dreams. 

The school’s flexible learning spaces, manicured gardens and outdoor educational grounds are complemented by a canteen, outdoor covered area and outdoor furniture. We also have state-of-the-art synthetic turf surfaces for students to play a range of sports and spend recreational time during breaks. We offer many extra-curricular activities that students can participate in, including the Student Leadership program, Breakfast Club, School Production, School Band, Sport Teams, Diversity Club, Culture Club and e-sports Club.
