The AISNSW provides advice and support to member schools on a range of child protection matters including whole school and specific child safe strategies, reportable conduct allegations and investigations, mandatory reporting, liaison with Family and Community Services, Police, the NSW Ombudsman and the Office of the Children’s Guardian, peer on peer abuse and child wellbeing. Other services include fee for service child protection investigations, on site consultancies and training and accredited investigator training. Schools with an employee accredited by AISNSW have access to the NSW Ombudsman’s Class or Kind Agreement which allows schools to investigate lower level physical matters without reporting to the NSW Ombudsman under the reportable conduct scheme.
