Child Safeguarding File

Childminder Paperwork > Child Safeguarding File

This guidance and the documents below relate to a Child Safeguarding File, a series of documents provided to support early years practitioners in your work with children for whom there are emerging child protection concerns or if a safeguarding concern has been identified.

Note your Local Authority might provide safeguarding documents – you should check locally. These documents aim to complement rather than replace any guidance provided by your Local Authority.
