Child Protection Policy for the Ministry of Education
The Vulnerable Children Act 2014, requires us — along with other State services and organisations providing government–funded services to children and families — to have a Child Protection Policy (CPP).
The Act requires our policy to:
- contain, at a minimum, how we identify and report child abuse and neglect
- be available to download from our website
- be reviewed within 3 years.
We must report on how we're implementing the CPP in our Annual Report.
Our Child Protection Policy goes beyond these minimum requirements and also sets out how we'll build a culture of child protection within the Ministry.
