DEPED CHILD PROTECTION POLICY


The recent unfortunate events from different schools related to bullying and child abuse
shocked and angered many Filipinos. The Department of Education promotes a zero-tolerance
policy for any act of child abuse, exploitation, violence, discrimination, bullying and other forms
of abuses. In this regard an orientation on the Department of Educations (DepEd) Child
Protection Policy has been conducted by the Senator Claro M. Recto Memorial School. The
principal, guidance teacher, parents and other school personnel participated in the activity held at
Senator Claro M. Recto Memorial School last November 2012.
There are different topics discussed to enlighten the participants about the Child
Protection Policy. The topics covered were the General Provisions of the Child Protection Policy,
particularly, Section 1-3, and its relevance to the New K to 12 curriculum. Also discussed were
the following provisions of the said policy: Duties and Responsibilities, Section 4-7, and Section
8-10, respectively. Preventive Measures, Section 11, Protective and Remedial Measures, Section
12-14, and Rules and Procedures, Section 15-16, and Section 17-21, respectively. Referral and
Assessment, Section 22 and Miscellaneous Provisions, Section 23-26, on the implementation of
the Child Protection Policy of the K to 12 Curriculum.
The DepEds Policies and Guidelines on Protecting Children in school from abuse,
violence, exploitation, discrimination, bullying, and other forms of abuse is a great help for
teachers in the handling of child abuse issues and in ensuring protection of children from
violence and exploitation. The 30-page policy guidelines is directed to protect a child from all
forms of violence that may be inflicted by adults, persons of authority, and their fellow students.
It serves as a guide for teacher to deal with bullying in schools and disciplining students without
committing child abuse. This was given emphasis in the said discussion. The CPP aims to protect
the welfare of the children from different forms of abuse (mental and physical) in school with
emphasis on bullying (including cyber-bullying) and corporal punishment. The discussant also
mentioned that the CPP was adopted to provide protection to children in certain difficult
circumstances in which they have no control and administer non-violent punishment to the
offender. It also aims to help not only the victim but also for children committing peer abuse.
After the discussions queries were answered by the CPC. These queries help teachers and

parents understand what Child Protection Policy is. This is the School's way of protecting our
pupils.
Attached are pictures to document the Roll Out of Child Protection Policy.
