Keeping Safe Curriculum

All classes at Padbury Catholic engage in the Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum (KS:CPC) program. KS:CPC is a world class, evidence-based child safety curriculum that teaches children and young people to recognise abuse, tell a trusted adult, understand what is appropriate and inappropriate touching and ways of keeping themselves safe.

 

The KS:CPC is delivered to students by educators that have completed a comprehensive training course. The KS:CPC has gained a world class reputation due to its depth of content, breadth of learning, contemporary nature, and requirements for explicit training.
