Child Protection Policy

Siamsa Tíre Teo is committed to a child-centred approach to our work with children and young people. We undertake to provide a safe environment and experience, where the welfare of the child/young person is paramount. We will adhere to the recommendations of Children First: National Guidelines for the Protection and Welfare of Children, published by the Department of Health and Children. We have implemented procedures covering:

  • Code of behaviour for all staff;
  • Reporting of suspected or disclosed abuse;
  • Confidentiality;
  • Recruitment and selecting staff;
  • Managing and supervising staff;
  • Involvement of primary carers;
  • Allegations of misconduct or abuse by staff;
  • Complaints and comments;
  • Incidents and accidents;
  • Touring and overnight stays away from home
  • Anti-bullying policy when working with children/young people

Our Child Protection Policy is updated annually.
