Safeguarding Children Policy

This document can be used by an organisation to set out its policies for protecting children who use its services and/or participate in events and activities organised by it. Organisations which may adopt such a policy include:

  • voluntary and community organisations
  • faith groups
  • private sector providers
  • hospitals
  • schools
  • sports clubs

The document provides a typical safeguarding policy that can be amended to account for specifics rules and guidelines, and tailored to each organisation's structure. In particular, the document allows amendment for reference to existing policies and specific health and safety rules.

Please note that the Safeguarding Children Policy is intended to set out the general approach of an organisation. It is not intended to provide detailed guidance. An organisation may wish to create further documents, or provide more detailed guidance, in separate policies such as a Code of Conduct or Employee Handbook.


How this document is to be used

The policy first needs to be approved by a member/trustee of the organisation's management or board. Once the policy has been approved it should be signed by a relevant person who is authorised to do so on behalf of the management or board of the organisation.
