Four new Safeguarding Documents

Four new Safeguarding Documents

Consultant: Steve BarkerDate posted: March 2015

On 26th March, the government publishes four safeguarding documents. Two are republications (Working Together To Safeguard Children and Keeping Children Safe in Education) and two are new (What to do if You Are Worried A Child is Being Abused (was a leaflet called this a long, long time ago) and Information Sharing).


None of these were expected but each publication contains important changes that governors need to be aware of, including changes to the statutory framework. Governors should ensure that their schools are aware of these publications and have taken account of the new statutory requirements.

Handling Parental Complaints and Conducting an Investigation Webinar

This Better Governor webinar will take place on February 13th at 08.00. It will explore how governors, trustees and those serving on Local Academy Committees ensure that parental complaints are handled effectively within their schools. Governing Boards are required to ensure that the school or academy has effective systems in place for listening to the views of parents and carers, and responding to their concerns. Governors may also be involved in commissioning or conducting investigations. This webinar will explore best practice issues surrounding parental complaints handling.
