The consultation on the revised draft Keeping Children Safe in Education closes on 16 February 2016.
By way of reminder, the consultation on the revised draft Keeping Children Safe in Education closes on 16 February 2016. ISC will be submitting a response, but schools are welcome to also do so to share their experiences of difficulties with current wording, or with proposed new wording. Note that the proposed changes are primarily in relation to parts 1 and 2, and the Appendices, as well as a minor change to Part 3 to reflect the need to undertake a prohibition check on those taking up management positions. It seems likely that draft changes to parts 3 and 4 will be coming at a later stage. Schools wishing to contribute to ISC’s response can send their comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
