Description:
A programme aimed at the prevention of child sexual abuse was introduced into primary schools in the Eastern Health Board area in 1991. It was extended to the whole country the following year. The programme is jointly supported by the Regional Health Boards and the Department of Education. A comittee was established at national level to oversee the implementation of the programme. Teams which included teachers and social workers were set up in each Regional Health Board area to promote the programme in schools and to give information and training to teachers, parents and members of Boards of Management of schools. As the programme had been available to all schools in the country from 1992 the Department of Education decided to conduct a survey in May 1994, through its inspectorate, to ascertain: (i) the extent to which the programme is being implemented in schools; (ii) the opinions of chairpersons, principal tcachers, parents of children participating in the lessons and members of the Stay Safe team, on the suitability of the programme and on its effectiveness in meeting its stated objectives.
