Children are at the heart of everything that the RCBA does, which is why we take the issue of child protection very seriously. Child protection is the term we use to describe the responsibilities and activities we undertake to prevent or stop children being abused or ill-treated. Although it is a very small minority that present this risk, everyone has a responsibility and role in protecting children and following all practical and reasonable steps to counteract the risk.
All concerns raised under our child protection policy will be dealt with promptly and will be treated seriously and sensitively. Your concerns will be discussed with you in order to help determine the precise action to be taken. Whenever possible, resolution will be reached within one week of the report.
