Home / Professionals / Education



Welcome to the schools/education section of the Safeguarding Children Board (SCB) website.

There is useful information in this section for all of those involved in education settings, whether you are:

  • a primary or secondary school:
  • special school;
  • nursery school;
  • academy or independent school; or
  • a college or an alternative education provider.

The purpose of having a section specifically for education is to provide all of the most relevant information and links for you in one place. However, it is vitally important that this is not the only section of the SCB website that you look at, as there is information relevant for you throughout this website so please familiarise yourselves with other content, particularly within the policy and procedure section.

If you have any feedback about the website, or would like to suggest a useful link or document to be included in the schools section, then please do not hesitate to contact Dawn Casewell, Safeguarding Education Officer –
