PDST Child Protection Guidelines and Procedures   

Seminars (Primary)

PDST are delighted to provide a one-day Child Protection seminar (primary). All newly-appointed Designated Liaison Persons (DLP) and Deputy Designated Liaison Persons (DDLP) are advised to attend this event to gain clarity on their role and an understanding of staff responsibilities under the Child Protection Guidelines and Procedures. 

Attendance at the seminar is limited to Designated Liaison Persons (or Deputy DLPs) who have been appointed in recent years and as a result have NOT availed of this training to date.  However, as there is sub cover for only one person per school for this round of seminars, the DLP should attend in the first instance to receive training. 

The content of the seminar will be based on the Children First Guidelines and DES Child Protection Procedures and will include key information and updated requirements for schools in the area of Child Protection. Please note that the content of the content of this seminar is the same as child protection seminars held in recent years.

Seminar participants should bring the following to the seminars:  

·        A copy of the Children First National Guidance 2011 (issued to schools in September 2011)

·        The DES Child Protection Procedures for Primary and Post-Primary Schools, available online at http://www.education.ie/servlet/blobservlet/cp_procedures_primary_post_primary_2011.pdf)

T    The Department of Education and Skills will facilitate substitute cover for one person per school where necessary.
