The Child Safe Standards Implementation Feedback Project has now finished. More than 200 Victorian school principals provided insight into how they have progressed implementing the standards and requirements of Ministerial Order No. 870 at their school.
The project found that schools had invested significant resources in implementing the child safe standards, but indicated a need for further support.
As a result, we will continue to develop resources and guidance material to help schools engage with child safety and drive cultural change within their school communities.
We have shared the findings with the Department of the Education and Training, the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria and Independent Schools Victoria.
We would like to thank all participating school principals and staff for their positive response to the project and for engaging with us on this important initiative.
