Four new Safeguarding Documents

Four new Safeguarding Documents

Consultant: Steve BarkerDate posted: March 2015

On 26th March, the government publishes four safeguarding documents. Two are republications (Working Together To Safeguard Children and Keeping Children Safe in Education) and two are new (What to do if You Are Worried A Child is Being Abused (was a leaflet called this a long, long time ago) and Information Sharing).


None of these were expected but each publication contains important changes that governors need to be aware of, including changes to the statutory framework. Governors should ensure that their schools are aware of these publications and have taken account of the new statutory requirements.
