Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership

Policies & procedures

2021 summary of changes (see document at bottom of page): 

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.

To adopt the policies below: 

  • Download the appropriate documents into a folder
  • Complete How our education setting safeguards students, Sept 21 
  • Include your examples of implementing safeguarding in the curriculum and wider activities
  • Add related policies, for example: attendance, behaviour, bullying, health and safety, equality and diversity
  • Ensure all staff have accessed and understood these policies
  • Make this folder available to parents and carers
  • Include a link to this section on your school website
