Child Safe Standards

The Victorian Government has announced new Child Safe Standards to further strengthen child safety across organisations, including schools. The new standards recognise the critical importance of families and the broader school community in maintaining and promoting child safety and wellbeing. Carrum Downs Secondary College has reviewed and updated our child safety policies and procedures to ensure they meet the requirements of the new standards. Policies are available to view on our website. We are committed to continuous improvement in our approach to child safety and wellbeing and welcome feedback from families and members of our school community on ways we can further strengthen our child safety policies, procedures and practices.

  • Provide assistance to young people to identify and address any health problems
  • Reduce the pressure on working parents
