Guidance on the safe use of changing facilities in schools.

This briefing on the safe use of changing facilities provides guidance on how to safeguard children and young people when they are using sports changing facilities. It includes recommended levels of adult supervision and examples of changing-room policies.

The NSPCC have produced a factsheet providing guidance on best practice for PE changing rooms in primary schools.

The guidance includes:

  • what schools need to consider when organising changing facilities for children;
  • staff supervision;
  • changing areas for children with additional needs;
  • and using off-site changing rooms.
