Allowing for anonymity

Students should be provided with the opportunity to contribute in less public ways. Some students may find it difficult to contribute to class discussion and may say little in group activities. Don’t assume they are not engaged in the activities.

Risk of significant harm

If a student discloses private information publicly and the teacher does suspect a student is at risk of significant harm they must inform their principal or workplace manager as per the Child Protection Policy: Responding to and reporting students at risk of harm.

The Mandatory Reporter Guide (MRG) can assist in making an informed decision regarding child protection concerns. More information is available on the Child Protection webpage.
