Expected Child Abuse Paper
It is very important that as a teacher you address your fears and focus on the fact that you are required by law to report any suspicion of abuse or neglect.
This week you have an opportunity to ask questions, share your experiences ( please do not mention names or schools where you may have had to report) but we can discuss incidents in a confidential way to help everyone learn.
