There is a protocol agreement between Child, Youth and Family and schools that suspected child abuse (physical, sexual or neglect) will be reported. Ask yourself the question, ‘Is the child safe?’ If the answer is ‘No’, report the suspected abuse immediately to Child, Youth and Family, or the Police.
