Webinar Duration: 44 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide governors, headteachers, designated safeguarding leads and all school staff with an expert overview of the proposed changes to the new Keeping children safe in education (KCSIE) statutory safeguarding guidance for September 2021.
On 10 December 2020, the DfE published their draft ‘Keeping children safe in education (KCSIE) 2021’ guidance for consultation. The process closes on 4 March 2021 and seeks views on the proposed changes due to take effect from autumn, including updates to their ‘Sexual violence and sexual harassment between children in schools and colleges’ guidance.
On 9 December 2020, the DfE also updated ‘Working together to safeguard children 2018’ in order to reflect changes around information sharing, homelessness duty and references to domestic abuse.
All three documents outline the statutory requirements that all schools and colleges must adhere to in respect of their safeguarding duties and promoting the welfare of children. This webinar will provide schools with an understanding of the proposed revisions and offer advice and clarity on the key updates to safeguarding policy.
