In all Department for Education and Child Development sites, there is a Child Protection in Schools, Early Childhood Education and Care Services policy.  Included in this policy is a requirement that all children and young people in preschools and schools will access approved child protection curriculum each year.  The child protection curriculum provides children and young people with strategies to recognise abuse, tell a trusted adult, understand what is appropriate and inappropriate touching and understand ways of keeping themselves safe.

Teachers choose the time of year to teach the child protection curriculum to their students and you will be informed when this will occur.

If you would like further information about the child protection curriculum, it can be found at
