PBCS Safeguarding Policy: COVID-19 Annex/Addendum

Version date: 30/03/2020

We are updating our Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy with coronavirus arrangements.

Late Friday 27th March 2020, the DfE published guidance for schools and colleges to support them keeping children safe, including online, during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Given the importance of this guidance, Martin Haskayne, Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) has created the following COVID-19 annex/addendum that summaries current COVID-19 changes.

This annex/addendum incorporates the Government's latest advice on Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) and COVID-19 safeguarding guidance when compared to ‘normal’ business.

This is annex/addendum is to be read in conjunction with the Trust’s full safeguarding policy and will remain under review as required by further Government policy/updates.
