Discipline - prohibition of corporal punishment

A registered non-government school must have policies related to discipline of students attending the school that do not permit corporal punishment of students.

Evidence of compliance

A registered non-government school will have in place and implement policies related to the discipline of students that:

  • either expressly prohibit corporal punishment or clearly and exhaustively list the school's discipline methods so as to plainly exclude corporal punishment
  • do not explicitly or implicitly sanction the administering of corporal punishment by non-school persons, including parents, to enforce discipline at the school.
