Keeping Children Safe in Education 2020

The 2020 version of Keeping Children Safe in Education came into effect on the 1st September 2020. At Safeguarding Network we have ensured our materials reflect the changes that have come into effect.  You can find more information on the changes and what they mean for you on our dedicated KCSiE page.

Safeguarding and coronavirus

Our COVID-19 resource page is being kept up to date with the significantly changed education culture, guidance and children’s living conditions. In addition to helpful prompts and guidance there’s a free template COVID-19 Annex to Child Protection Policy to download and adapt to your setting following the DfE guidance along with other resources.

I use Safeguarding Network – well worth the subscription fee, pre made training and massive wealth of resources on there!” – DSL

“It does exactly what it says on the tin – a huge time-saver” – Head of Student Services/DSL

“It’s brilliant – you must have found it a game-changer?” – Ofsted inspector to member school

Rolling out KCSiE in your school

Keeping Children Safe in Education requires designated safeguarding leads to support and develop their staff group in over 40 different topic areas.  Safeguarding Network helps structure your approach with learning resources, audit tools, sample policies and short learning pieces for your staff that help you evidence how you keep children safe in your school.
