The Department has developed a new Schools’ Privacy Policy and related documents for all Victorian government schools to implement.

The new Schools’ Privacy Policy:

  • replaces any existing privacy policies used by our school.
  • ensures our school is compliant with updated Victorian privacy legislation
  • clarifies that all school staff (including Student Support Service Officers, other allied health practitioners and teaching staff) may share personal and health information about a student with all other staff who 'need to know' that information, to enable the school to educate or support the student or fulfil legal obligations.
  • allows for personal and health information about students transferring between government schools to be shared with the next (Victorian government) school, without requiring separate parental consent.
