Child Safety at YPS
As part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to implementing the recommendations of the 2014 ‘Betrayal of Trust’ report, there are new regulations in place aimed at enhancing child safety, underpinned by new Child Safe Standards.

The Child Safe Standards are compulsory minimum standards for all Victorian schools, to ensure they are well prepared to protect children from abuse and neglect. These are detailed in the Ministerial Order number 870, which came into effect on 1st August.

Our school has a range of policies in place that sees us well on the way to meeting these standards. We are currently reviewing all policies to ensure we are fully compliant with the standards within the school year.
