In 2016, the Victorian Education Minister introduced compulsory requirements that apply to all providers of services for children.
The introduction of these requirements was to help protect children from all forms of abuse.
Seven child safety standards form part of the Victorian Governments’ response to the Betrayal of Trust Inquiry. The college is committed to child safety and to preventing potential child abuse incidences.
The Islamic College of Melbourne does this by creating a culture and structure to address any issues related to child abuse.
All staff, volunteers and school members are responsible for supporting the safety of children by adhering to the code of conduct.
ICOM has implemented policies, procedures, practices, and standards relating to child safety.
ICOM believes that these are positive steps and will continuously strive to improve the safety of all students at the college.
