Policy Self Assessment

This short self-assessment tool can be used to help you understand any key gaps in your organisation’s child safeguarding policy.

Please remember that your policy should be reviewed at least every three years to ensure it is fit for purpose and addresses any new or emerging child safeguarding risks.

Your results are confidential (we don’t collect your data for any marketing or communication purposes), but if you would like to discuss any issues raised by the assessment, please get in touch with our team.
