Student Protection Fact Sheet

 STUDENT PROTECTION INVOLVES

  • Working to make schools safe and supportive places;
  • Taking action to prevent students being harmed at school; and
  • Reporting any suspicion you have that a student has been harmed or may be at risk or harm.
  • All children have a right to be protected from harm.

HARM IS

Any detrimental effect of a significant nature to the child’s physical, psychological or emotional wellbeing. It is immaterial how the harm is caused. This means anything that will have a serious and harmful effect on a student’s physical health, or how they think and feel about themselves.
You must report, to the Principal, any harm to a student that is caused by:
  • Someone working at the school,
  • another student,
  • someone from the student’s family,
  • a friend or a stranger,
  • the student self-harming.
If you suspect the Principal is responsible for causing harm to a student report this to the Executive Director, Schools at the local district office.
 
The main thing to remember is: If you suspect a student might have been harmed or might be at risk of harm, tell the Principal straight away. If the Principal isn’t available, you must tell the Acting Principal or a Deputy Principal.
