The school’s Safeguarding and Child Protection policy needs to be reviewed every year, and many DSLs will be starting to think about doing this ready for the new academic year. Over the last couple of years there have been plenty of changes to safeguarding legislation and guidance and these should have been reflected in the policy.
I have produced a policy checklist to help you assess whether your policy has any gaps. You can download the policy checklist here:

For members of Safeguarding.Pro, I’ve recorded a 30 minute seminar about the key issues involved in reviewing a safeguarding and child protection policy. Where your policy has gaps, you can correct them using my Policy Cheat Sheet. Reviewing a policy can take ages, but you’ll find the task much quicker using the information in the Policy Review Seminar.
