The SCC Model Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy has been updated and is available to schools on the Suffolk Learning website.
The updated policy can be found at: SCC Model Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy for Schools September 2022
The updates have been highlighted in green to make it easier for you to
identify what has been added/changed or moved
The main updates are:
- The previously standalone full guidance on child-on-child sexual violence and sexual harassment has been incorporated into KCSiE in Part Five of the document;
- There is a real emphasis on opportunities to teach safeguarding;
The need for schools to have a policy/procedure for dealing with low level concerns about staff behaviour that do not meet the ‘harm threshold’ for referral to the LADO.
