Re: Child protection/DES Circular 81/17 ‘Child Protection Procedures for Primary and Post-Primary Schools 2017’
Following consultation with the stakeholders, the DES has published seven new templates/documents to assist schools in the implementation of the 2017 child protection procedures.
In addition, the DES has updated one of its previously published templates.
The full suite of 14 templates/documents including existing, new and updated, are now published on the INTO dedicated Child Protection webpage.
