The DfE call for evidence on Safeguarding children in schools and colleges.  This relates to Keeping Children Safe in Education 2024 and it is pertinent that this is a call for evidence ,rather than a full consultation.

There is an extensive list of questions across a range of domains in this call for evidence.

  • The role of the safeguarding lead
  • Recording, retention and transfer
  • Safer Recruitment
  • Child on Child and Sexual Violence
  • Quality Assurance
  • Filtering and monitoring
  • Online Safety
  • Protecting Children in Boarding and Residential Special Schools

SACPA and BSA are arranging 4 free of charge member only focus group events to collate the views of members and deliver an association response. This focus group will explore the role of the safeguarding lead.

We hope to save the time and resource of members who may otherwise be unable to respond.
