Protective Interrupting: If a student begins to disclose information that may harm themselves or others, facilitators must interrupt the student.
For example, ‘What you have to say is very important and I'm glad you have chosen to talk about it. At the moment we’re talking about …., but I will listen to you, maybe at recess. Can you wait until then?’
At the earliest appropriate moment, speak with the child to hear their story, and consult with a senior leading teacher, welfare or guidance officer for support and advice. If you are not comfortable speaking with the child, seek advice first.
