Low-level concerns about staff: safeguarding scenario

Download your ready-made resources here

Share this scenario with your staff to check their:

  • Understanding of how to handle a safeguarding situation
  • Knowledge of your procedures


  • 2 scenarios within each document - one aimed at primary schools and the other for secondary schools. Delete the scenario that doesn't apply to your phase
  • 2 versions of each document - one with prompts for how staff should respond (with answers), and one without prompts included (without answers)

If you send the scenario to staff by email, make sure you use the version without answers. Erase 'low-level concerns about staff' from the file name before sending it, so staff don't see which safeguarding issue the scenario is about.

If you use the scenario at a staff briefing, make sure you give staff the version without answers.
