The guidance for Keeping Children Safe in Education 2019 has now been published. Both KCSIE 2019 and the recently released Teaching Online Safety in School guidance contains important information for schools, colleges and local authorities on how to build a child centred and coordinated approach to safeguarding. As the Autumn term gets underway, join us to ensure that you are fully prepared and informed on how to keep children safe under the revised framework.

Our event this November will offer a platform to discuss best practice and an up to date brief on the latest policy and guidance for safeguarding schools. You will be equipped with the tools and techniques to review approaches to safeguarding in your school and provide the underpinning knowledge and behaviours that can help pupils to navigate the online world safely.

Key issues to be addressed include:

  • An overview of the Government’s policy on statutory and non-statutory safeguarding guidance for schools
  • Understanding timeframes for the changeover between Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018 and 2019
  • Integrating Teaching Online Safety in Schools and Keeping Children Safe in Education
  • School safeguarding policies: how revised duties should be referenced and reflected
  • Initial and continuing professional development: training teachers on online safety
  • Safeguarding and online safety: What Ofsted are looking for
  • Best practice: developing a comprehensive safeguarding development plan online and offline
  • Working effectively with local partners: local authorities, police & CCGs
  • Dealing appropriately with allegations against staff

The event:

The morning session will focus on recently published statutory and non-statutory guidance regarding safeguarding children in schools and how it is inspected.

The afternoon session will build on this, focusing on individual experiences and examples of best practice, learning from schools that effectively safeguard their children what more you can do in your setting.

Who should attend?

You will join a range of education stakeholders including, but not limited to: Headteachers, Senior Leaders, Safeguarding Leads, School Business Managers, Governors, Local Authority Representatives and anyone involved or interested in child safety.
