Child Safety In Schools

What is this training about?

Schools play a critical role in protecting children and young people from abuse and neglect. Through their regular contact with children and young people, they are in a strong position to promote student’s health, safety and wellbeing, as well as identify signs and risks of abuse and neglect.

Safeguarding pupils in schools has been a cornerstone of educational practices for decades, however we continue to hear about child abuse cases in school settings by those who are responsible for the safety of the students themselves – school staff.

This interactive virtual classroom will help participants learn more about creating safe environments for children and young people through robust safeguarding practices within the school setting.

  • Identify the risks of child abuse in the school setting
  • Learn about the findings and recommendations from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, in relation to schools
