There is a duty on boards and school staff to have arrangements in place to ensure that they carry out their functions with a view to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and have regard to the statutory guidance issued by the Secretary of State in considering what arrangements they need to make. Educational settings have a central role to play in the early identification of any welfare concerns about a child, additional needs they might have and indicators of possible abuse, neglect or other wider safeguarding concerns. To be effective, all schools should work in a multi-agency way with other organisations, share and receive information about individual children in order to protect them from harm. As such all schools should have regard to the statutory guidance set out in Working together to safeguard children 2015.
