Example safeguarding policy statement

Publication date 2019

Every organisation that works with children needs to have a safeguarding and child protection policy statement, which sets your commitment to protecting children from harm.

We've created this example, which you should tailor according to the context of your organisation. It should be used in conjunction with our information on safeguarding policies and procedures. In addition to an overarching policy statement your organisation should have a set of detailed policies and procedures which explain the steps adults within your organisation must take to keep children safe.

These include:

You must make sure all adults and children are aware of, understand and can access your safeguarding policies.
