National safeguarding guidance

National safeguarding guidance for schools/ education providers

Keeping Children Safe in Education was updated in September 2018.  An NSPCC factsheet is available outlining the overview of the main revisions.

There is also a new document called ‘Guidance for safer working practice for those working with children and young people in education settings’ that was published in October 2015 by the Safer Recruitment Consortium. The government recommends that schools use this alongside statutory guidance to develop their safeguarding policy and procedures.
