Schools have a statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of all pupils.
Are all your governors up-to-date with their statutory responsibilities around safeguarding? The statutory guidance Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) places an obligation on all governors and trustees to receive appropriate safeguarding and child protection training at induction and to ensure that their training is regularly updated. KCSIE is updated annually, with a new version due to come into effect in September 2023.
This popular workshop will run as a webinar and cover all the essential information you need to understand your statutory responsibilities.
It is so important that all governors are aware if their responsibilities for child protection and safeguarding, especially new governors as part of their induction, and governors with a lead for monitoring safeguarding in their school.
