Statutory guidance for schools and colleges on safeguarding children and safer recruitment.
The September 2020 version of the keeping children safe in education guidance is now in force and replaces previous versions. We have made changes in 3 circumstances: where legislation has required it e.g. reflecting mandatory Relationship Education, Relationship and Sex Education and Health Education from September 2020. where we have helpful additional information that will support schools and colleges protect their children e.g. mental health, domestic abuse, child criminal and sexual exploitation and county lines. important clarifications which will help the sector better understand and/or follow our guidance. A table of changes is included at Annex H.
