Every child has the right to be safe and free from all kinds of abuse, including bullying and harassment, and neglect.
Schools are mandated child safe environments with legal, policy and procedural requirements for staff and volunteers.
The South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools (SACCS) requires its schools to implement child safety policies and practices, including child safety education.
View the SACCS Policy for the Care Wellbeing and Protection of Children and Young People and associated publications.
The Keeping Safe Child Protection Curriculum provides the framework to teach children and young people from age 3 to Year 12, in an age appropriate way, to recognise abuse, talk to trusted adults and understand ways to keep themselves safe.
Keeping Safe Child Protection Curriculum is mandated in all Catholic schools in South Australia.
Our teachers undertake professional learning to implement this important area of curriculum.
The video below provides more information on how the curriculum is implemented in schools.
