Corporate Safeguarding Policy

Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.


Members received a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services relative to the background and current position of the Corporate Safeguarding policy which had recently been updated. There were minimal changes made to the policy in relation to the lead for Social Adult Care, guidance update and new initiatives in relation to adult safeguarding.


Members asked where the Corporate Safeguarding Policy sits in relation to schools, as there was concern that there would be crossover or differences between policies.


The Director advised that schools have to tailor their safeguarding policy to the Corporate Safeguarding Policy, and that school policies often flow down from the Corporate Policy.


RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
