Information Sharing Guide for Registered School Teachers and Principals in Victoria

An information sharing guide for registered school teachers and principals in Victoria providing support to vulnerable children and families.

As a registered teacher or principal in Victoria, you must:

  • make a report to Child Protection if you form a reasonable belief that a child is in need of protection from physical injury or sexual abuse (a mandatory report)
  • provide information relevant to the protection or development of a child who is subject to a Children’s Court Protection Order where properly directed to do so
  • only share information as authorised by privacy legislation (such as the Information Privacy Act 2000), where you are not specifically authorised by the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 to share information, as described in this guide.
