Keeping Children Safe in Education

The Department for Education (DfE)'s most recent statutory guidance on safeguarding is Keeping Children Safe in Education, which came into force from 5 September 2016.

It should be read and followed by all schools and further education (FE) colleges. This includes maintained and independent schools, academies and alternative provision academies, free schools and pupil referral units (PRUs).

The updated guidance makes it clear that it also applies to maintained nursery schools. This is set out on pages 3 and 4. 

The guidance is organised into four main parts covering:

  • Safeguarding information for all staff
  • The management of safeguarding
  • Safer recruitment
  • Allegations of abuse made against teachers and other staff
