Personal Goods

The new Policy and Advisory Library (PAL) is now available. This page will be redirected to PAL from the start of Term 3. Make sure to update your bookmarks to the new PAL site.

Purpose of this policy

To ensure schools advise the school community about the Department’s policy on private property.


Principals must inform parents/guardians and students at enrolment, and remind them annually, that private property brought to school by students is not insured by the school or covered by school insurance, and that it is not the responsibility of the Department if that property is lost, stolen or damaged.

Policy template for schools

A downloadable policy template for Victorian government schools is available on the Department's intranet site, the School Policy Templates Portal at: Personal Property Schools can modify the template to suit their local circumstances.
