We are a caring school with a highly qualified and exceptionally committed staff, who recognise the importance of creative and challenging teaching and high professional standards. All staff and students are greatly valued and emphasis on student and staff wellbeing is central to our culture.

The Cottesloe School is committed to promoting and safeguarding the welfare of children and offers of employment will be subject to Enhanced DBS clearance, and satisfactory teacher status, qualification, identify, reference and health checks as part of the safer recruitment process. All employees are expected to share this commitment, to follow safeguarding policies and procedures and to behave appropriately towards children at all times whilst undertaking school activities and in their personal lives.
