Child Protection

AISNSW assists schools with a range of child protection matters including investigations, reporting and relevant government regulations. The AISNSW Child Protection Team provides a daily Intake Service to ensure timely and high-level advice to member schools for all child protection related matters.

MOU between Department of Family and Community Services and the AISNSW

This Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) relates to the reporting requirements of Section 27 of the Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Act 1998  (the Act) and the endorsement of the continuation of centralised reporting for Risk of Significant Harm (ROSH) reports.

The endorsement of centralised reporting across the sector will bring about a consistent approach to reporting within schools across the non-government school sector and NSW and bring about greater collaboration between DCJ and independent schools, whilst still meeting the requirement of mandatory reporting under Section 27 of the Act.

Child Safe Standards and the Child Safe Scheme

AISNSW supports independent schools to implement Child Safe Standards so they can apply child safety into everyday behaviours, attitudes, and practices of within the school’s culture.
Our training program - 'Creating Safer Independent Schools - Session 2' - draws on current research, providing a range of practical strategies and tools to further assist schools to examine the Child Safe Standards, and how they can implement these to demonstrate best practice.
