Withdrawing from Safe Schools

A Tim Nicholls-led Liberal National Government will withdraw the Safe Schools Coalition resources from Queensland schools.

The Problem

Our schools are no place for agendas and ideologies. We need our classrooms and our schools to be focused on delivering great education outcomes for our children.

Labor’s focus on the Safe Schools Coalition program and resources has left parents and communities in the dark on how widely it is being used.

Labor Ministers are unwilling to say if the Safe Schools Coalition program’s use has been formally audited in the past two years and there is no disclosure of which schools are using the resources.

New South Wales and Tasmania have withdrawn the programme from their schools.

Our Record

The LNP has a strong record of delivering quality education outcomes for students across Queensland.

In government, the LNP delivered additional funding directly to Queensland schools through its Great Results Guarantee.

This funding gave schools flexibility to invest in the local school community to improve education outcomes.

Between 2012 and 2014 the LNP invested $600 million in school maintenance.

We reduced the school maintenance backlog inherited from the previous Beattie and Bligh Labor Governments.

Our Real Plan 

A Tim Nicholls-led LNP Government will say no more to the Safe Schools Coalition program. 

The LNP is committed to building a better Queensland and building stronger families.

We will withdraw Safe Schools Coalition resources from Queensland schools.

Under the LNP’s plan to tackle bullying we will develop a new anti-bullying resource for Queensland schools developed in consultation with teachers, parents, educational experts and child psychologists and that is age appropriate.

Any form of bullying or anti-social behaviour should never be tolerated in our schools.
