Child Protectoin Policy

We believe that child abuse and neglect are contraventions of a child’s human rights and are impediments to the child’s education as well as to their personal, physical, emotional and social development.

What is Child Protection Policy?

Child Protection Policy is a statement of intent that demonstrates a commitment to protecting students from harm (to self and from others) and makes clear to all what is required in relation to the protection of students. It serves to create a safe and positive environment for children and to demonstrate that the school is taking its duty and responsibility seriously.

What is child abuse?

Child abuse means any form of maltreatment inflicted on a child including physical abuse, sexual abuse and emotional abuse.


Physical Abuse

♦ Hitting, punching, shaking, throwing, poisoning, biting, burning or scalding, drowning, suffocating or otherwise causing intentional harm to a child.
♦ Physical harm may also be caused when a parent or career (care giver) fabricates the symptoms of, or deliberately induces, illness in a child.
♦ Anti-social, violent and/or abrasive behaviour
♦ Problems in school
♦ Fear of adults

Emotional Abuse

Emotional abuse is the persistent emotional ill treatment of a child so as to cause severe and adverse effects on a child’s emotional development
It may involve:
♦ Conveying to children that they are worthless or unloved; that they are inadequate or valued only insofar as they meet the needs of another person
♦ Age or developmentally inappropriate expectations being imposed on children. These may include interactions that are beyond a child’s developmental capability, as well as overprotection and limitation of exploration and learning, or preventing the child participating in normal social interaction.
♦ Causing children frequently to feel frightened; or the exploitation or corruption of children.
♦ Serious bullying (including cyber bullying)
♦ Not giving the child opportunities to express their views, deliberately silencing them or ‘making fun’ of what they say or how they communicate
♦ Seeing or hearing the ill-treatment of another
♦ Fear of a particular person

Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse involves:
Forcing or enticing a child to take part in sexual activities, whether or not the child is aware of what is happening. The activities may involve:
♦ Physical contact, including penetrative (i.e. rape) or non-penetrative acts such as masturbation, kissing, rubbing and touching outside of clothing.
♦ Non-contact activities, such as involving children in the production or viewing of pornographic material or encouraging children to behave in sexually inappropriate ways.
