Creating a Safe Environment

Everyone who works with children needs to be able to identify the signs of physical and sexual abuse. By having this awareness, you may be able to stop abuse before it happens.

Prevention Resources

While it would be very difficult to prevent all abuse situations in schools, we can strive to make schools safer through following best practices, increasing awareness, staff training, and implementing clear procedures on what to do if an incident is suspected.

Where do we start?

  • Review our suggested Best Practices which give you a broad overview of preventative measures and policies to put in place regarding reporting and communication.

What resources are available to help us increase awareness and identify potential situations?
