Course Description

September 2015 brought big changes for educational establishments, with both:

  • The legislation changing
  • Ofsted significantly 'raising the bar' in relation to safeguarding.

In July 2015 the Government issued statutory guidance called 'Keeping Children Safe In Education (2015)'; schools and colleges must have regard to it when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This statutory guidance was updated in September 2016, leading to 'Keeping Children Safe In Education (2016)'. This statutory guidance is specifically for the following education establishments:

  • All schools – whether maintained, non-maintained or independent
  • Academies
  • Free schools
  • Alternative provision academies
  • Pupil referral units (PRUs)
  • Maintained nursery schools
  • Further education (FE) colleges
  • Sixth form colleges.

As a result, this programme is essential for all those involved in the teaching, welfare and safeguarding of pupils and students up to the age of eighteen, who attend any of the educational establishments listed above.

Unlike other safeguarding programmes, that focus more broadly on the child protection aspects of safeguarding, this course covers the range of educationally specific safeguarding issues. Designed specifically to meet the safeguarding needs of the educational sector, this course is designed for all those involved in the education of children and young people, including:

  • leaders and managers
  • educational professionals such as teachers and lecturers
  • classroom assistants
  • other staff working within the educational establishment.

The 'Keeping Children Safe In Education (2016)' statutory guidance, defines safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people as:

  • protecting children from maltreatment
  • preventing the impairment of children’s health or development
  • ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and
  • effective care
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

Education managers, professionals and practitioners have a particularly important role to play in the safeguarding of children and young people; they are in an ideal position to identify concerns early and provide help, so preventing escalation.

All education establishments and their staff, form part of the wider safeguarding system for children. 'Working Together To Safeguard Children (2015)' outlines the national system for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.

This course addresses the safeguarding issues that are specifically relevant to the education sector and that form the focus of the statutory guidance 'Keeping Children Safe In Education (2016)'. It is designed to supplement, but not replace, the BYSTZ e-Learning course Safeguarding Children and Young People - Level 3, which covers all the more general safeguarding issues, including:

  • the various forms of abuse and neglect
  • how to recognise abuse and neglect
  • the breadth and importance of key safeguarding legislation
  • practitioner responsibilities in relation to general safeguarding concerns
  • reporting, recording and confidentiality
  • responding to the evidence of abuse and neglect
  • responding to disclosure
  • multi-agency working
  • sharing information.

This course addresses:

  • Important legislation and guidance, including Keeping Children Safe In Education (2016)
  • The role of the designated safeguarding lead
  • Children missing from education
  • Child sexual exploitation
  • Brook's sexual behaviours traffic light tool
  • Using the brook's sexual behaviours traffic light tool
  • Trafficking
  • The key issues Ofsted inspectors look for when inspecting safeguarding requirements
  • Female genital mutilation
  • Forced marriage
  • Preventing radicalisation
  • Prevent Duty and Channel
  • Bullying
  • Cyber-bullying
  • Sexting
  • Domestic violence and abuse
  • Gangs and youth violence.

Under the 'personal development, behaviour and welfare' section of the Ofsted inspection criteria, educational establishments are judged on the effectiveness of their safeguarding arrangements, needing to demonstrate that they are meeting their statutory responsibilities. Overall effectiveness will be judged 'inadequate' or 'requiring improvement', if safeguarding is found to be ineffective.

In order to ensure effective safeguarding, educational establishments need to ensure:

  • Policy – is developed that describes how it is committed to preventing and responding appropriately to harm
  • People – have a clear understanding of their responsibilities and how to act in relation to them
  • Procedures – create a child-safe environment through the implementation of standardised safeguarding practice across the organisation
  • Accountability – through the monitoring and review of safeguarding measures.

This programme will do much to ensure that children and young people attending educational establishments remain safe from harm and that educational establishments work within the confines of the law and the boundaries of statutory guidance; all of which will help in the success of Ofsted inspection of this critical area.
