Life Skills Education Safeguarding Children Policy
Purpose: This document outlines Life Skills Education Charity (LEC) policy for the safeguarding and protection of children and young people aged under 18 years. This policy provides guidance to all staff who may come across concerns of this nature within the context of their work.
Life Skills Education Charity employ staff who work either directly in schools with young people and/or are in positions of trust, and as such the organisation accepts the responsibility of safeguarding all children and young people. All employees, whatever their role should familiarise themselves with the organisational policies and procedures around safeguarding.
Safeguarding children is a shared responsibility and the organisation seeks to work with all partners in ensuring this responsibility is carried out fully. LEC has appointed an Organisational Safeguarding Lead (OSL) to take responsibility for the overall implementation of this policy.
