Model safeguarding policies for schools to use and link to schools' health and safety information.
We have a number of model policies available for schools to adopt and customise by adding their own logo.
The policies have been approved by our legal team and we therefore ask that they are not altered or amended in any way, as this may invalidate the policy.
The model policies are attached to this page.
Our services can help your school meet its legal obligations to create a safe and healthy workplace for staff, pupils and visitors.
