Keeping Who Safe?

Adults visiting or working on a school site play an important part in the life of a school, whether helping to build or maintain the building or visiting as part of the school’s wider community.

 

We can all play a part in keeping young people safe whilst working on or visiting a school site.  This is whether you are directly employed by the school, or working as a contractor or sub-contractor.

 

Keeping young people safe is covered by the Government Guidance (DfES Safeguarding Children in Education guidance 2007).

 

Our actions can sometimes be perceived in a way that was not intended.  We want to promote safe working practices for everyone on a school site, whatever your job.

 

We must also take steps to keep ourselves safe.  To keep yourself safe from possible allegations, please follow this advice.
