COVID-19 Safeguarding Policy Template

Education Safeguarding Policy - Template COVID 19

Schools and colleges already have a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy in place reflecting business as usual. It is likely that the policy will not accurately reflect new arrangements in response to COVID-19.

It is important schools and colleges (led by a DSL or deputy, wherever possible) review and revise their child protection policy and keep it under review as circumstances continue to evolve. In some cases, a COVID-19 annex/addendum that summaries any key COVID-19 related changes might be more effective that re-writing and re-issuing the whole policy. To help education providers, TSSP have developed a template appendix for your Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.
