Child Protection

On December 11th 2017 new Child Protection Procedures were implemented for all primary and post-primary schools in line with Children First.

This has brought about some changes to the way schools deal with child protection issues.

To facilitate the training of all staff in these new child protection procedures all primary schools are entitled to take two half days to participate in online and offline material.

As our new Child Safety Statement and Risk Assessment must be in place by March 11th 2018 and because the online material has only just been made available St. Colman’s NS will close at 12:00pm on Wednesday February 21st and 28th to facilitate training and the formulation of the Child Safety Statement and Risk Assessment.

Links to Children First and the relevant circular can be found below for anyone interested in further reading.

We thank everyone for their cooperation with this.
