Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership

Policies & procedures


  • The Policies & Procedures for 2022-23 have been updated
  • The 2022 summary of changes is coming soon
  • Our web documents have been updated in line with Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022 and other national and local guidance

In September 2020 Ofsted confirmed that:

When inspecting under the Education Inspection Framework Ofsted Inspectors must follow the “Inspecting safeguarding in early years, education and skills settings” guidance. This does not specify how a school’s safeguarding policies must be written but does specify that these policies “are in place, consistent with government guidance, refer to locally agreed multi-agency safeguarding arrangements and are regularly reviewed.”

The Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership and the Safeguarding Children Advisors in QAIS (SCC) ensure that the policies below are accurate and updated annually.  The key pieces of national and local safeguarding children guidance can be found on the right side of this page.
