Safeguarding in schools and post-16 settings

Schools and colleges in England must have regard to the statutory guidance when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. All staff who work in schools must read and understand Part 1 and Annex A of Keeping Children Safe in Education.

The DfE also issue The Independent Educational Provision in England and Independent School Standards.
