Webinar: Child Protection Procedures for Secondary Schools

Event Date: 14 May 2021

We hosted a webinar looking at Child Protection Procedures for Secondary Schools on Friday 14 May* at 11am.

The Department of Education published comprehensive Child Protection Procedures for Schools in 2017.

This was a game changer for schools in that all teachers became mandated persons. In turn Boards of Management were tasked with strict oversight and compliance obligations which included dealing with allegations or suspicions of abuse against employees. At this webinar, the MHC Education team reflected on the challenges experienced by school leaders over the last 4 years and discussed different scenarios. 

Speakers included:

Ian O'Herlihy, Partner & Head of Education, Mason Hayes & Curran LLP

Liam Riordan, Partner, Mason Hayes & Curran LLP

Catherine Kelly, Senior Associate, Mason Hayes & Curran LLP

David Ruddy, BL, Mason Hayes & Curran LLP
