[from Keeping children safe in education (DFE, 2018)]

“All staff should be aware of systems within their school or college which support safeguarding and these should be explained to them as part of staff induction. This should include:

  • the child protection policy;
  •  the [pupil] behaviour policy;
  • the staff behaviour policy (sometimes called a code of conduct);
  • the safeguarding response to children who go missing from education; and
  • the role of the designated safeguarding lead (including the identity of thedesignated safeguarding lead and any deputies).

Copies of policies and a copy of Part one of this document should be provided to staff at induction.”
