DECS Child Protection Policy 1998
  • All children have access to child protection and
    abuse prevention programs
  • Families are provided with information and
    opportunities to participate in these programs
  • Educators participate in training and development
    which gives them knowledge and skills to provide
    personal safety programs to children

Rationale for new Child Protection curriculum
Layton Review - 2003
  • That DECS update the personal safety/protective
    behaviours program delivered in schools

Protective Behaviours
  • Pre 1985 the only work done was entirely based on
    stranger danger
  • By 1993 8,000 teachers and numerous SSOs
    parents and other agency personnel trained in
    Protective Behaviours
  • 1992 to 1998 resources developed. Program
    underwent a significant evaluation in DECS,
    Catholic and Independent school sites

    are that students

    and social)

Why develop a Child Protection Curriculum?

    opportunity to ensure that all children and young
    people know
  • What abuse is and the harm it causes
  • That it is against the law and what protection
    they are entitled to
  • That children and young people who have been
    abused are not to blame
