Keeping Children Safe In Education – Statutory Guidance

The Department for Education published updated statutory guidance at the end of March 2015. The guidance replaces the ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education 2014’ document. A link to the document is attached. Schools must have regard to this guidance when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. Of significance is the duty on Governing Bodies / Management Committees to ensure that all staff in schools and colleges read at least part one of the guidance, which is available as a separate section on the DfE website.














"Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. Please note that weeks without communications to schools are ignored and the links will go to the last week where a communication was made in this category."
