Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum

It is a Department for Education (DfE) responsibility under the Children’s Protection Act (1993) and the Child Protection in Schools, Early Childhood Education and Care Services policy to ensure that effective abuse prevention programs are implemented and that all children and young people have access to the approved child protection curriculum. Although parent permission is not required under the Education Act (1972), we encourage parents/caregivers to seek further clarification if required and to provide the teacher with any relevant information about their child that could alleviate any concerns.

The teachers delivering the Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum (KS:CPC) program have received explicit training in the Curriculum.​

The KS:CPC is an evidence based, best practice curriculum developed collaboratively with child protection specialists, teachers, educational leaders and other professionals. It covers a range of topics including new additional material on current issues such as bullying and cyber safety.

The focus areas are targeted to the age of the learners.

Concept summaries for what is taught in each age group are:

The KS:CPC fits primarily within the Health and Physical Education learning area of the Australian Curriculum but can also be incorporated across other Learning Areas. ABHS incorporates the KS:CPC into the Lifestyle Choices and Studio One programs.
