This policy explains how Victorian government schools collect and manage personal and health information.


A reminder that the Department of Education has in place a mobile phone ban that requires students who bring mobile phones to school to have them switched off and securely put away during school hours.


The department is requiring all schools to ensure this ban is in place and enforced from the start of the 2024 school year.


The ban applies equally to all government schools right across the state.


This helps ensure that school is a learning environment free from unnecessary distractions and disruptions.


By ensuring mobile phones are kept away at recess and lunch times, students can interact with each other face-to-face, without the distractions and social pressures that mobile phones can cause.


We ask for the support of all our families, staff and students in continuing to support the implementation of this policy in our school.


Further information

Exceptions: For a small number of students with particular health needs, an exception to the policy may be granted. Please contact Mrs Anthony if you would like to discuss this.

Emergencies: In the event of an emergency or if you need to immediately contact your child, I ask that families contact the school office who will pass on a message as required.

Child Safety and Wellbeing at Korumburra Secondary College:



The Victorian Government has announced new Child Safe Standards to further strengthen child safety across organisations, including schools. The new standards recognise the critical importance of families and the broader school community in maintaining and promoting child safety and wellbeing. 


Korumburra Secondary College has reviewed and updated our child safety policies and procedures to ensure they meet the requirements of the new standards.  These are available to view on our school's website at -



We are committed to continuous improvement in our approach to child safety and wellbeing and welcome feedback from families and members of our school community on ways we can further strengthen our child safety policies, procedures and practices.
