Child Safeguarding

Feeling at Home in Dublin Oak


Child Protection: at Dublin Oak Academy, the welfare of the child is the first and paramount consideration. All children have a fundamental right to be respected, nurtured, cared for and protected. Therefore, all those who collaborate in Dublin Oak Academy, are properly trained in accordance with the Child Safeguarding Policy of the Legion of Christ. This policy follows the standards and guidance document by the Catholic Church in Ireland, which is based both on Gospel values and civil legislation. Furthermore, Dublin Oak Academy works with Praesidium Inc., a leading company in abuse risk management, based in the United States of America.

24 Hour Supervision:

a)     Students are always supervised.

b)    Night Supervision. Should any student need attention, two night supervisors are always available for each group, to be woken up at any time and accessible for the student’s needs.

c)     Only male staff lives in the Academy with the boys. These are members of the Legions of Christ and Deans of Students.

d)    For students’ safety, the Academy is equipped with CCTV cameras, 24 hours a day.
