We are committed to addressing the needs of the whole school community in relation to substance abuse education. The school community, Board of Management, staff, parents and students share responsibility to ensure the acceptance and implementation of this Substance Abuse Policy.

7.  Child Safeguarding & Risk Assessment Policy

This considers the potential for harm to come to children while they are in the organisation’s care. It should be noted that risk in this context is the risk of abuse and not general health and safety risk.

A risk assessment is an exercise where the organisation examines all aspects of its service from a safeguarding perspective, to establish whether there are any practices or features of the service that have the potential to put children at risk.

This policy applies to all staff and students during school hours, break times and on all school related activities.

The Green School Programme is an international environmental education programme, environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges longterm, whole school action for the environment.
