Keeping Children Safe in Education – Sept 2018

New statutory guidance, published by the DfE, replacing KCSIE 2016, came into effect on September 3rd 2018.

The document sets out the legal duties with which schools and colleges must comply and also contains information on what schools and colleges should do (unless they have good reason not to) in order to keep children safe.

In the last version of Keeping Children Safe in Education (2016) schools were told that they should take into account the safeguarding needs of children with SEN and Disabilities. This guidance goes a little bit further and underlines what that means.

Other key changes including are around:

  • Contextual Safegaurding
  • Peer-on-Peer Abuse
  • Sexual Harassment and Violence
  • Contact Numbers
  • Use of Reasonable Force

and the required Safeguarding Learning and Development of all Staff

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.

  • Children will family members in prison;
  • Criminal Exploitation of children (County Lines); and
  • Homelessness

September 2016

Following a Serious Case Review on Child Exploitation in Oxfordshire, David Cameron said:

“UK child sexual exploitation is a ‘national threat…We have got to really resolve that this stops here, it doesn’t happen again and we recognise abuse for what it is.” He added that “if professionals fail, there need to be consequences”.

On March 3rd 2015, Cameron proposed that there should be:

Unlimited fines and criminal proceedings for individuals and organisations shown to have let children down.
