National Principles for Child Safe Organisations
Port School is committed to the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations. These principles were endorsed by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) in 2018, and are based on the Royal Commission’s Child Safe Standards. They drive the implementation of a child safe culture across all sectors providing services to children and young people, ensuring their safety and wellbeing.
The National Principles collectively show that a child safe organisation is one that creates a culture, adopts strategies and takes action to promote child wellbeing and prevent harm to children and young people.
