Introduction

The New England Conservatorium of Music has a duty of care to ensure that children are not subject to abuse in education and care settings. Education and care workers play a significant role in the protection of children from abuse and neglect. It is the responsibility of all education and care workers to treat children with dignity and respect, to act with propriety, and to protect children in their care.

This policy has been developed in line with the NSW Ombudsman guidelines for child protection in the workplace and procedures for the management of child protection and in line with the relevant legislation regarding child protection.
