The Daniel Morcombe Child Safety Curriculum was developed by Queensland’s Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE) in partnership with the Daniel Morcombe Foundation. The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development partnered with DETE to make the Curriculum available for use in Victorian schools.
The Curriculum is aligned with the Draft Australian Curriculum, and consists of classroom lessons across three levels: Prep - Year 2 , Years 3 - 6 and Years 7 – 9. It aims to teach children about personal safety, including cybersafety and phone safety, and focuses on three key safety messages: Recognise, React and Report.
Parent guides have also been developed to inform parents about the Curriculum and help them reinforce the key safety messages at home.
