The School’s Child Protection Policy supports each student’s development in ways which will foster security, confidence and independence. The School staff recognises that students have a fundamental right to be protected from harm and have their safety and well-being promoted. Students cannot learn effectively unless they feel secure, therefore Child Protection is an intrinsic element of all aspects of the curriculum.
Procedures for Reporting Suspected (Or Disclosed) Child Abuse
The designated teachers for Child Protection are Ms SJ. Fahy and Mrs J. Young.
In the absence of the Designated Teacher (DT) for Child Protection, the Deputy Designated Teacher (DDT) will assume the DT role and Mrs Gavin, Vice-Principal will undertake the role of DDT.
They assume responsibility for child protection matters.
