Working together to safeguard children

Thursday 5 July 2018

The Department for Education has published the statutory guidance on inter-agency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

This guidance is for:

  • local authority chief executives
  • directors of children’s services
  • chairs of local safeguarding children boards (LSCBs)
  • teachers and education staff
  • social workers
  • health service professionals
  • adult services
  • police officers
  • voluntary and community sector workers in contact with children and families

It applies to:

  • local authorities
  • all schools

The 2018 version replaces the 2015 version and the transitional guidance helps explain how to move to a new system of practice reviews.

The statutory framework sets out the legislation relevant to safeguarding and it should be read alongside the statutory guidance.

Thank you for your feedback.
