Be inclusive

Appreciate and celebrate the diversity of all students within the classroom. Provide opportunities for students to reflect on situations and issues in the context of their own life experiences. Keep in mind that those students who do not feel included or valued will most often disengage from learning.

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.
