This information applies to the application round for funding in 2022, which has now closed. Updated information will be provided shortly.
The CLS must demonstrate compliance with Child Safe Standards, including having in place:
- a Child Safe Policy
- a Code of Conduct (signed by all staff)
- a Child Safe Officer at each campus.
In addition, volunteers and committee members are required to undertake Child Safe Standards training with CLV on commencement and every two years.
Compliance with the Standards will be checked with CLV as part of the accreditation process.
No document is required for submission. In the application form you will be asked to confirm that your school has understood and met the requirements of the Child Safe Standards, and you will be asked to name the Child Safe Officer present at each campus. (A different Child Safe Officer must be nominated at each campus.) The Child Safe Officer must complete training with CLV. The school’s compliance with the Child Safe Standards will be confirmed with CLV. For assistance in meeting your obligations for compliance with the Child Safe Standards please contact the Child Safe & Compliance Officer at CLV.
