New National Minimum Standards

The updated National Minimum Standards came into effect from 1 April 2015.

The National Boarding Standards cover the full range of welfare, health and policy issues.

How the Standards work

These Standards contain arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children for whom accommodation is provided by boarding schools. They provide the minimum standards below which no school is expected to fall in securing outcomes for boarders.
