Safeguarding and Child Protection Guide

The recent Safeguarding and Child Protection Guide which has been delivered by DE to schools, is a document that has not been ratified by either INTO or the NITC.  DE acknowledges that it does not form any part of a teacher’s contract of employment and therefore INTO instructs its members not to sign either the annex or the appendices to the annex.

Members who find that they are being pressured or coerced into signing the document should contact Northern Office for further advice.
