A safeguarding children policy is a statement that describes and highlights how an organisation will keep children and young people it works with safe from harm. Things you should include in the safeguarding children policy are:
- The purpose and aim of the organisation and the commitment to protecting children.
- The main guidance and law that underpins the policy.
- Whom the policy applies to.
- Who your designated safeguarding lead(s) is.
- The commitment to equality and non-discriminatory practice.
- The date your policy comes into force and when it will be reviewed.
Contextual safeguarding is an approach to understanding and responding to young people's experiences of harm outside of the home e.g. school, peer groups, online or in the local community.
Contextual safeguarding starts by finding out where young people spend their time and working on making these places safer. For example:
- by engaging with young people to ensure they find the place safe and supportive.
- displaying information about who to contact if a young person has concerns.
- providing information to shop owners, so they know what to do if they have concerns about children.
