Child Protection Procedures for Primary and Post Primary Schools

The new Child Protection Procedures developed by the Department of Education and Skills incorporate significant improvements to the previous school guidelines and are intended to better ensure consistent and uniform implementation of Children First across all schools.

The improvements include:

  • a new template child protection policy
  • a requirement that all primary schools fully implement the Stay Safe programme
  • a requirement that all primary schools put in place improved oversight arrangements at Board of Management level.
  • Circulars

    In 2011, the Department issues Circular 0065/2011, cl0065_2011 chid protection procedures for schools
