Child Safety Team & Protection Advocate

The Child Safety Team is a small group of school staff whose role is to oversee the policies and procedures that will result in a safe campus environment. They ensure that there is a comprehensive student protection program in place at the school and regularly monitor the effectiveness of the program.

They support teachers and counselors in implementing student protection curriculum and ensure and guide the safety training of all staff that have either direct or indirect contact with students. They also sensitively assess and respond to reports of harassment and abuse.
