Ministerial Order No. 870 (Child Safe Standards)

Ministerial Order No. 870 has been implemented for the purpose of section 4.3.1(6)(d) of the Education and Training Reform Act 2006.

Ministerial Order No. 870 is a key part of the Government's response to the recommendations of the Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry into the Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and other Non-Government Organisations.

The Inquiry's Betrayal of Trust report recommended that implementation of minimum standards for maintaining 'child-safe environments' for all organisations with direct and regular contact with children be standardised in all registered Victorian schools.
