Safeguarding considerations for changing rooms

Schools briefing

Publication date April 2024

Schools have a duty to protect the children and young people in their care. This should include putting measures in place to make sure children and young people feel comfortable and are safe when getting changed for physical education (PE), drama and other activities.

This briefing outlines best practice on:

  • appropriate changing areas
  • supervising children and young people
  • assisting children and young people with additional needs.

Although this briefing is aimed at the education sector, it may be helpful for other organisations.
