Safeguarding Guidance for Education and Lifelong Learning Services

This guidance document has been produced on the basis of supporting good practice within Education and Lifelong Learning in relation to safeguarding and child protection.

The Local Authority Education Department employs a full time Education Child Protection and Safeguarding Officer who is based in the Civic Centre. The Officer provides advice, guidance and support on child protection and safeguarding matters for school staff, parents and other professionals and also provides training for school staff, education staff and governors. Each school has appointed a designated teacher - usually the Headteacher in primary schools, with responsibility for child protection and safeguarding. Each school governing body has appointed a governor with responsibility for child protection and safeguarding.

This guidance clearly defines the expectation on schools and education support services to have in place safeguarding policies and procedures, which are in keeping with local and national procedures and guidance.
