Safeguarding Children in Education

Content Block

Child Protection Procedures and Local Guidance

The Child Protection Guidance for schools and other Education Providers has been revise in light of changes contained within “Keeping Children Safe in Education” 2016. An important feature to these changes are the guiding principles of Working Together 2015 and the central role schools play in multiagency working to support and safeguard children and young people.

Training and course notes


We deliver a range of child protection training for staff in schools: whole school, designated safeguarding leads and governors.  Training is also offered to enable Designated Safeguarding leads to deliver safeguarding and child protection training within their own settings.
