Essential Safeguarding Documents

There are nine essential safeguarding documents that need to be taken into account when plannining safeguarding in your school. Some of the safeguarding documents are statutory, some non-statutory and one is a curious hybrid!

The documents are listed below with links to the relevant webpage, but I’ve also pulled them together in one zip file, so you can download them all in one go! Guidance does change over time, so do check that they are the latest versions.
