Changes to Keeping Children Safe in Education - outcome of government consultation

7th June 2018

In December 2017, the DfE opened consultation on the latest round of revisions to Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSiE), the statutory guidance document to which all schools and colleges (regardless of status) must have regard when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

A revised version, which has been published ‘for information’ at this stage, will come into effect from 3rd September 2018. Until then the existing version remains in force.

A list of all substantive changes can be found in Annex H of the new document.

Our briefing note focuses on those changes which potentially impact on HR. Whilst the revisions are not substantial they may require some small adjustments to be made to HR practices or procedures.
