Safeguarding Responsibilities


Safeguarding Is Everyones Responsibility

Schools have a statutory duty to protect children in their care. They must have:

  • A current safeguarding policy reflecting current legislation and guidance.
  • Child protection procedures 
  • A Designated Safeguarding Lead for child protection (DSL) and is a member of the senior management team.
  • A safeguarding Governor 
  • Safe recruitment processes

The school environment must be a safe place for children, and schools must ensure that adults who work in the school, including volunteers, don't pose a risk to children.

Staff receive training in how to identify and respond to child protection concerns.
