Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum

The Keeping Safe Child Protection Curriculum teaches all children from a young age, in an age appropriate way, to:

•recognise abuse and tell a trusted adult about it
•understand what is appropriate and inappropriate touching
•understand ways of keeping themselves safe.

The South Australian developed Keeping Safe child protection curriculum is mandated in all Catholic Schools in South Australia.   The curriculum is taught from three-years-old to Year 12 within the Health and Physical Education component of the Australian curriculum and through pastoral care initiatives that focus on building resilience in children and young people.
