Child Protection Procedures

Implementation of Child Protection Procedures 

If a child makes a disclosure, or a member of staff has concerns about a child, that person must act promptly. These must be reported to the Designated Teacher. If there are concerns that a child may be at risk, the school is obliged to make a referral. 

Miss Maguire may seek clarification or advice from EA Child Protection Officer before a referral is made. No decision with regards to a referral is made without careful consideration and appropriate advice. 

If you are concerned about your own or another child’s welfare you can at all times: 

  • Speak with the class teacher 
  • If you are still concerned, you may speak with Miss Maguire or Miss McGoldrick. 

Please be advised that: 

The right of confidentiality for parents, carers, teachers and children will be respected at all times. Information will only be shared in the interests of the child’s welfare.
