The revised guidance for Keeping Children Safe in Education which comes into force on 3rd September can be found here. Whilst existing trainees and staff must continue to use the 2016 version for the rest of this academic year, the 2018 revisions should be used with next year’s cohort of trainees.

Keeping Children Safe in Education Part 1 has to be read by all members of the staff; and for everyone working directly with children, they also need to read Annex A.

Induction training, must now include the school’s behaviour policy and the school’s procedures for managing children who are missing education, as well as the staff code of conduct, and the child protection policy.
