"This booklet provides advice to schools and others on their responsibilities in relation to child protection, including the action to be taken to enable cases of suspected abuse to be properly considered and pursued. It includes guidance on how complaints against school staff should be handled. Its contents do not constitute, or purport to be, an authoritative interpretation of the law: that is exclusively a matter for the courts... Although most of this guidance is framed in terms of schools, many of its messages are also relevant to other education institutions and services, such as Colleges of Further Education, the Youth Service and the Library Service..." - introduction.
