Keeping Children Safe in Education Statutory Guidance And Changes To Online Safeguarding

The huge growth of internet usage and widespread access to social media have led the Department of Education (DfE) to review the Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) guidance with an updated version becoming statutory in September 2016. This guidance means that every school needs to consider and review its safeguarding policies and procedures, particularly on how they protect students online.

In this white paper you will learn about:

  • The aspects of online safety that KCSIE asks schools to protect children from

  • What schools must do in terms of guidance and inspection

  • What Ofsted will be looking for at inspections
