We encourage the review into the School; it is vital that vulnerable school children are adequately protected and preventative action is taken quickly. We currently act on a number of cases where mandatory reporting may have prevented a child from being abused. We urge the government to take action on this matter to ensure any suspicions are reported to the relevant authorities earlier.
