Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse

This programme aims to support teachers' current understanding of mandatory reporting of child abuse in schools across Australia. It focuses on the legal aspects of mandatory reporting, including variations from state to state, and describes the process by which a teacher can form a belief that a student is being abused. Additionally it provides clear definitions of what constitutes child abuse and explores the different possible physical and/or behavioural manifestations of the impact of child abuse on children. This programme provides information to teachers about the process of making a notification to a relevant child protection authority and discusses how the notification might be handled from that point.
