External Speakers Policy (2023)
The guidance uses:
- The current Keeping Children Safe in Education, Statutory Guidance for Schools/Colleges
- The Prevent Duty Guidance for England and Wales
This guidance supports our:
- Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy
- Tackling Extremism & Radicalisation Policy
- RSE Policy
Why do we need an External Contributors and Speakers Policy?
Orchard recognises that using external agencies can enrich and support the curriculum and the school ethos. Children and young people often find visitors an informative and interesting element of their learning.
We wish to ensure that delivery by external contributors/speakers is consistent with school policy, curriculum and ethos. It is important that these opportunities are positive ones and are productive for the pupils, staff and the outside agency/visitor and that safeguarding is also taken into account.
