Child Safe Standards

Children have the right to be safe and protected, including at school.

Registered schools and other child-related organisations have an important responsibility for keeping children safe. Most organisations already take steps to protect children from abuse. More can be done, however.

Child safe standards to manage the risk of child abuse in organisations are being phased in during 2016 and 2017.

Child abuse, and arrangements that allow it to occur, will not be tolerated. Victoria’s children deserve nothing less.
