The Child Protection Policy: Responding to and reporting students at risk of harm sets out the roles and responsibilities of staff in relation to child protection including training, reporting on safety, and supporting children and young people, as well as monitoring, evaluation and reporting requirements.

All staff have a responsibility to recognise and respond to safety, welfare or wellbeing concerns for children and young people and inform their principal or workplace manager. The Mandatory Reporter Guide (MRG) can assist in making an informed decision regarding child protection concerns. It is the responsibility of principals and workplace managers to report suspected risk of significant harm concerns to the Family and Community Services (FACS) Child Protection Helpline.

More information is available on the Child Protection web pages.
