Child Safety

Commitment to Child Safety

Kangan Institute is a child safe organisation. We are committed to providing, in a safe environment, opportunities for children and young people to participate in education and to the empowerment of all children under 18 years of age. 
We do this by:

  • Respecting and empowering children. 
  • Ensuring a safe physical and online environment.
  • Valuing diversity and unique identities.
  • Continuous improvement practices.

From 1 July 2022, the Child Safe Standards are changing to further protect children and young people. To view the new standards click here.
