Criminal Vetting and Sexual Offences

The Child Protection Act and the The Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act both emphasise the need to vet all staff members who come into contact with children.

The Sexual Offences and Related Matters Amendment Act also stipulates that a person who has knowledge that a sexual offence has been committed against a child or a person who is mentally disabled must report such knowledge immediately to a police official.

The National Registrar for Sex Offenders is used to record the details of all offenders who have been convicted of a sexual offence against children and mentally disabled persons.

The attached documents outline the steps that independent schools should follow to ensure they are compliant with the various legal requirements relating to criminal vetting and sexual offences.
