The Victorian Government now requires all community language schools which have direct contact with children
to implement the 7-new child safe standards from 1st January 2017. Organisations that provide services or facilities
for children must implement Child Safe Standards to protect them from abuse.
Child safe standards aim to prevent any physical, sexual and emotional abuse or neglect of students.
The leadership/principals of all schools have the responsibility to nominate a knowledgeable staff as a child safe officer
in each campus to implement policies and required procedures for their schools to achieve these standards.
