Child Safety Standards

The 7 Standards are:

1: Strategies to embed an organizational culture of child safety, including through effective leadership arrangements.

2: A child safe policy or statement of commitment to child safety.

3: A code of conduct that establishes clear expectations for appropriate behavior with children.

4: Screening, supervision, training and other human resources practices that reduce the risk of child abuse by new and existing personnel.

5: Processes for responding to and reporting suspected child abuse.

6: Strategies to identify and reduce or remove risks of child abuse.

7: Strategies to promote the participation and empowerment of children. 


The new Victorian Government Standards provide a clear and consistent pathway to check on any gaps and ensure the Ministerial Order 870 is active within our current school policies and procedures. If you wish to view any of our school policies please don’t hesitate to contact me at the office.
