Example behaviour codes for adults and children

Last updated: 14 Jan 2019 Topics: Safeguarding and child protection

Organisations that work with children need to have clear expectations about what behaviour is acceptable from the adults, children and young people who are involved in the organisation. This will help keep all children safe and make it easier to manage any incidents of inappropriate behaviour.

We've created these example behaviour codes, which you can use to make sure everyone in your organisation understands the right way to behave.

They should be used in conjunction with our information and resources on safeguarding and child protection
