Children have the right to be safe and protected, including at school.
Registered schools and other child-related organisations have an important responsibility for keeping children safe. Most organisations already take steps to protect children from abuse.
The child safe standards strengthen existing approaches to preventing and responding to child abuse and aim to create a culture where protecting children from abuse is part of everyday thinking and practice.
