New Child Safety Standards

The new revised Child Safe Standards came into effect on July 1st.  The new standards recognise the critical importance of families and the broader school community in maintaining and promoting child safety and wellbeing and replace the previous standards which came into effect in 2016. There is also a strong recognition of the cultural needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

St Pius X has reviewed and updated our child safety policies and procedures to ensure they meet the requirements of the new standards. The first batch of these reviewed documents is available on the policies page of our school 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. For more information, visit:
