INTO Q and A Guide to Child Protection Procedures

Circular 81/2017 (pdf)

The INTO has compiled a comprehensive Question and Answer guide to the Procedures for Primary and Post-Primary Schools 2017 and set out the main provisions of the Procedures.

We have also made available links to the Procedures themselves, DES Circular 81/2017, the Children First National Guidance 2017 document, the Children First Act 2015 and all other relevant documents, including downloadable and printable templates, appendices, the Child Protection and Welfare Report Form, and an information video.
