Writing a child protection policy

This page contains local protocols and good practice documents which have been developed for use within Buckinghamshire.

Child Protection Policies

The BSCB is unable to provide a ‘model’ Child Protection policy template, as a Child Protection policy needs to be tailored to meet the needs of each individual organisation.
However, the BSCB has produced two checklists which can be used for guidance, and an example CP policy (which has been endorsed by the BSCB) is available to view for reference.

CP Policy Checklist – Childrens Workforce

CP Policy Checklist – Adult Services

Example CP policy (Wycombe District Council)

A checklist and example Child Protection policy have also been developed for use in schools, along with an appendix specifically referring to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM):
