CHILD SAFE STANDARDS

Children have the right to feel safe and be protected from sexual, physical and emotional abuse. Victorian law requires organisations that work with children to meet the Child Safe Standards by 1 January 2017.

IDS applauds the Commission for Child and Young People on the introduction of the Child Safe Standards act (effective 1 Jan 2017).

IDS is proud to have established a safe dance school and community for all of our dancers, teachers and families over the past eight years.

IDS has never employed teachers without Working With Children's Checks or with dubious backgrounds or histories relating to child crimes. We ensure that all of our teachers are background checked, have valid WWC's and are referenced or personally referred, thus ensuring the safety of your child/children whilst in our care.

We encourage all who attend dance schools across Victoria to ensure that your dance school is also compliant.

The seven standards are: 

  • Standard 1: Strategies to embed an organisational culture of child safety, including through effective leadership arrangements

  • Standard 2: A child safe policy or statement of commitment to child safety

  • Standard 3: A code of conduct that establishes clear expectations for appropriate behaviour with children

  • Standard 4: Screening, supervision, training and other human resources practices that reduce the risk of child abuse by new and existing personnel

  • Standard 5: Processes for responding to and reporting suspected child abuse

  • Standard 6: Strategies to identify and reduce or remove risks of child abuse

  • Standard 7: Strategies to promote the participation and empowerment of children.

IDS has a Child Safe Policy and Statement of Commitment to Child Safety in addition to our existing Code of Conduct, policies and measures. 

Every one of our teachers upholds current Working With Children's Checks and is personally referred/referenced.
