Children First 2018

FaceBook  Twitter  

On 11th December 2017 the Commencement of all sections of Children First Act 2015 was announced.

What now are the implications for the Faythe School and your child(ren)?

All teachers are now ‘mandated persons’. There are two areas of responsibility which will apply to mandated persons in a primary school:

  • Where a mandated person knows, believes or has reasonable grounds to suspect, on the basis of information that he or she has received, acquired or becomes aware of that a child:
    • has been harmed
    • is being harmed
    • is at risk of being harmed

He or she must report that knowledge, belief or suspicion, to the Child and Family Agency (Tusla) as soon as practicable.

  • Where a child believes that he or she:
    • has been harmed
    • is being harmed
    • is at risk of being harmed

and discloses that belief to a mandated person, the mandated person must report that disclosure to Tusla as soon as practicable.

Child Safeguarding Statement

The Board of Management (BOM) of each school must produce a Child Safeguarding Statement on or before 11 March 2018.
