The safety of our students is our absolute priority.
Victoria’s Child Safe Standards are a set of mandatory requirements to protect children and young people from harm and abuse.
The Child Safe Standards (the Standards) commenced in Victoria in January 2016. Changes have been made to make our Standards even stronger. The new Child Safe Standards came into force on 1 July 2022.
The Victorian DET and VRQA define the Child Safe Standards:
The needs of all students are considered when addressing these standards, in particular for students with disabilities, and those from Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander or culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
