Keeping Safe – Child Protection Curriculum

The Keeping Safe Child Protection Curriculum (KS:CPC) is mandated in all public preschools and schools and is taught by teachers who have completed a full day KS:CPC training course. It is a world-class, evidence-based child safety program that is used by a range of other Australian and international schools.

The program is based on the belief that all children and young people have a right to:

  • be treated with respect and to be protected from harm
  • be asked for their opinions about things that affect their lives and to be listened to
  • feel and be safe in their interactions with adults and other children and young people
  • understand as early as possible what is meant by ‘feeling and being safe’.

The curriculum follows two main themes:

  • We all have the right to be safe
  • We can help ourselves to be safe by talking to people we trust.

The two themes are explored through four focus areas:

  • the right to be safe
  • relationships
  • recognising and reporting abuse
  • protective strategies.

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