This in-depth, evidence-based article offers 10 safeguarding priorities for the coming months to help your school plan your safeguarding work from September onwards and ensure a culture of safeguarding.

Other themes include managing concerns about members of staff, supporting and training governors, student voice, child-on-child abuse, and mental health.
