On November 26th 2015 Victorian Parliament passed the Child Wellbeing and Safety Amendment Bill 2015 to introduce child safe standards into law.
Ministerial Order no 870 was gazetted in January 2016. The Order details specific actions that schools must take to meet the child safe standards. These standards will promote cultures where protecting children from abuse is part of everyday thinking and practice in organisations.
To ensure compliance with The Order and in line with the School Code of Conduct and Child Protection Policy, all staff employed at Mansfield Steiner School must undertake the Department of Education and Training online e-Learning Module: Protecting Reporting and other Obligations.
Mansfield Steiner School has also appointed Child Protection Officers:
- Jen O’Donnell
- Jacinta Walker
- Ariel Stava
They will also form part of a working group to review and monitor our policies in light of these standards.Download our Child Protection and Safety Policy
