Guides for school principals

An easy-to-understand overview of what is expected and how we can help.School principals can benefit from guides that provide an overview of essential information about standards, guidelines and other legislated requirements.

There are three guides tailored to government, Catholic and independent schools. They contain links to up-to-date online information and an overview of important topics such as:

  • the child safe standards
  • the minimum standards for school registration
  • school reviews and compliance monitoring
  • bushfire preparedness and anaphylaxis management
  • international students, CRICOS registration and student exchange.

Every school in Victoria must be registered with the VRQA, which works with the Department of Education and Training and the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria, to support schools in meeting registration requirements.
