In Victoria, all schools must meet the minimum standards for school registration. The minimum standards provide a foundation for quality schools through:

  • good governance
  • strong financial management
  • effective curriculum
  • sound teaching practices
  • safe environments for children.

The following policies support us in these aims and in meeting the minimum standards.
