On the 17th June 2020, the DfE published the new Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSiE) statutory guidance for schools and colleges, due to come into effect from September 2020.
The new guidance has several significant updates. In particular, it stresses the link between mental health and safeguarding, stating:
- It is key that staff are aware of how traumatic adverse childhood experiences can impact mental health.
- Governing bodies and proprietors have clear systems and processes in place for identifying mental health problems and escalating referrals.
In this webinar, mental health and wellbeing expert, Anna Bateman, will help school governors, senior leaders, headteachers, DSLs, Mental Health Leads, teachers and support staff to understand the new changes to the guidance. She will discuss what the revisions mean for your school’s current mental health provision and how you can best prepare for the new academic year.
