NEW Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016


The Department for Education has published the new Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016. This statutory guidance comes into force on 5th September 2016. The changes are not dramatic, but there are some areas that have greater emphasis than in the past.

Although the government chose not to make PSHE statutory, it is clearer in Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016, that Governing Bodies ‘should ensure’ children are taught about safeguarding…as part of providing a broad and balanced curriculum.

Safer Recruitment has a number of small changes that tighten up loopholes around vetting.

In this video, Andrew Hall looks through the new Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016 and talks about the changes.
