Child Protection Program
LESNW is in the process of resolving some final issues with Complispace on the Child Protection Program and anticipates the Program should be rolled out in preview mode to Learning Communities in the very near future. The Program has been updated to bring it in line with the new Child Protection legislation, the most recent being the introduction of the Child Safety (Prohibited Persons) Act and Regulations on 1 July this year. This legislation strengthens background checks for people working with children and young people through the creation of the Working with Children Check Scheme. Details of this and who it will be apply to in LESNW Learning Communities are outlined in the revised Child Protection Program.
Other areas covered in the Program will include:
- Child Safe Policy
- Child Protection Responsibilities
- Procedures for Responding to and Reporting allegations of Child Abuse
- Staff and Student Professional Boundaries
