The book is clear, sensibly laid out and effort is made to avoid overly complex or 'lawyerly' language...I applaud the aim of offering this text to the widest possible audience. I think it would be difficult to improve upon the structure and the topics of this text.

It is easy to see the book becoming the go-to guide and point of reference for people whose work touches the area of safeguarding children.
Family Affairs, 2019
This book is going to go a long way to helping DSLs and headteachers…If you work with vulnerable children a lot of the time, if you're very involved in child protection as opposed to safeguarding, then I think this is a really good reference shelf book that you can dip into when necessary…
Safeguarding in Schools
…a jargon-free,well-structured book that appears to have the right amount of information for GPs, with or without a specific child safeguarding role, for reference in their day-to-day role…The authors avoid legalese, choosing rather to employ simple English, with clear explanations of key legislation and procedure. The text is friendly to the eye; paragraphs are sequentially-enumerated, ensuring that any cross referencing isn't tedious; and salient information is highlighted. There are also several informative case studies to focus attention on important topics or dilemmas.
