The Department for Education (DfE) has published an updated version of its statutory guidance to create ‘Keeping children safe in education 2022’. This guidance will come into effect from 1st September 2022.

The changes to the previous document include:

  • Additional information about domestic abuse;
  • The importance of schools talking to parents and carers regarding a child’s access to online sites once away from school;
  • Guidance on child-on-child abuse (previously peer-on-peer abuse) has been merged into KCSIE 2022;
  • Safeguarding and child protection training will help governors and trustees;
  • Further information on the role of the virtual school head;
  • Information about schools and colleges ensuring children who may be LGBT have a trusted adult who they can be open with;
  • A reminder that DBS checks on volunteers are free;
  • Highlighted the importance of ensuring children understand the law on child on child abuse is there to protect them rather than criminalise them.
