NEW CHILD SAFETY STANDARDS
The new Child Safe Standards outlined in Ministerial Order 1359 come into effect on 1 July 2022, in all Victorian schools. Schools will transition from the current seven Standards to the new 11 Standards, and Ministerial Order 870 will no longer apply. The new Standards have been updated from 7 to 11 Standards and include new requirements such as:
involving families and communities in organisations’ efforts to keep children and young people safe
a greater focus on safety for Aboriginal children and young people
managing the risk of child abuse in online environments.
