The CAPH Policy Working Group has commissioned a range of model policies for the use of CAPH member schools, including the Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy. Please check the policy matrix below for full details of how the policies have been put together, notes for their usage and review dates. Additional policies are being developed and we will notify you through the Bulletin as they become available.
