Student protection

PublishingPageContent

Because of their regular contact with students and families, staff in schools play a vital role in:

  • identifying and responding to suspected child abuse and neglect
  • helping families to access support services that may build on their strengths and address issues impacting on their parenting.

The Department of Education is committed to providing safe, supportive and disciplined learning environments, preventing reasonably foreseeable harm to students and responding when an employee or visitor to state schools reasonably suspects harm or risk of harm to students.

Staff actions and decision making in relation to suspected student protection concerns are guided by departmental procedures including the Student Protection Procedure and the procedure Allegations Against Employees in the Area of Student Protection.
