Keeping Children Safe in Schools and Colleges

In order to safeguard children whilst in education all staff, volunteers and governors are expected to comply with the requirements of the current Department for Education guidance, Keeping Children Safe in Education 2021 updated July 2021.

There are several safeguarding topics covered in this guidance

  • Children missing from education

  • Homelessness
  • So-called 'honour-based' abuse
