Introducing resources for Early Stage 1 to Stage 5

New resources are available to help schools provide child protection education. Child protection education is mandatory in all NSW public schools from Kindergarten to Year 10 as part of the personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE) curriculum.

These new resources reflect the change from the old to the new PDHPE syllabus. Strong links are made to outcomes and content and a strengths-based approach is taken to all teaching and learning activities.

Teachers can use the resources to teach child protection education that is relevant to students and inclusive of all learners based on their needs and context. Opportunities are included for students to reflect on situations and issues based on their own life experiences in a safe and supportive learning environment.

Access the new child protection education resources by visiting the PDHPE page of the department’s website.
