What Boards Need to Know About Child Protection

8th August, 2020 @ 9:30 am


08/08/2020 - 9:30 am - 12:00 pm


Child protection is of paramount importance for every school but it is becoming increasingly complex with changes in State and Federal legislation, technology and social media. Boards need to have a shared understanding and engage with and demonstrate their commitment to child safety to ensure a harmonious school environment where child safety is prioritised.

Consideration needs to be given to the Australian Student Wellbeing Framework (2019) as well as the National Principles of Child Safe Organisations (2018) which reflect the ten child safe standards recommended by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, with a broader scope that goes beyond sexual abuse to cover other forms of potential harm.

This session will delve into recommended best practice approaches that schools should consider from a strategic perspective when considering child safety policy and procedures.


Target audience: Board Chairs, Board members, Business Managers and Principals


Sonia Albertini, Head of Legal Services, AISSA
Mary Pickett, Senior Education Consultant, AISSA
Carolyn Grantskalns, Chief Executive, AISSA
