The Education Department has advised schools that they have a responsibility to provide care and supervision programs for certain groups of students for the rest of this week.

Those groups are:

  • Primary school students and all students in specialist schools who are the children (or under the care) of essential services workers. Examples of essential services may include health, police, corrections and emergency services workers.
  • Primary and secondary school students who are vulnerable, including children in out-of-home care, children deemed by Child Protection and/or Family Services to be at risk of harm or children identified by the school as vulnerable, including via referral from outside agencies

The Department has also advised schools to ask parents who are essential service workers if they require holiday program places for their children over the Term 1 holidays due to the State of Emergency, and to work with vulnerable children and their families/carers to establish if they will require a care and supervision program over the Term 1 holiday.

If you are a parent/carer of a student in one of those groups and you haven't been advised of care and supervision arrangements, contact your school. 

If you're not able to get the information you need from the school, contact the Education Department or Parents Victoria.
