Child Protection Policy

Today’s half day in lectures consisted of an interesting session on what we must be aware of as teachers when it comes to the crucial subject of child protection. I had not necessarily considered the procedure a teacher might take, especially when we begin in schools and the fact that a child may confide in us. It was very interesting on signs to look out for with a child and the different forms of abuse that may be taking place. It is also essential to learn immediately, when beginning in any new school, who the protection officer is.
How do you feel about the responsibility and procedures in your school?
