Guidelines for schools - Pregnant and Parenting Young People

The School Education Act 1999 requires schools to provide a range of support strategies to meet the needs of all students including those who are pregnant and/or parenting.

These guidelines aim to support schools fulfil their responsibilities by providing:

  •  information and resources to help principals and other school staff meet the needs of pregnant and/or parenting young people;
  •  advice to schools to enable pregnant and parenting young people to remain engaged in secondary education;
  •  information on how to prepare effective education plans for pregnant and parenting young people; and
  •  information and resources to help students to feel safe and supported in the school environment.
