Safeguarding Online 2021: Understanding Changes to the DfE KCSiE 2021 Proposed Statutory Guidance

Webinar Runtime: 22 Minutes

On the 10th December 2020, the DfE published their draft ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSiE) 2021’ guidance for consultation. The process closes on 4th March 2021 and seeks views on the proposed changes due to take effect from September 2021.

The document outlines the statutory requirements relating to online safety that all schools and colleges must adhere to in respect of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.

This mini-webinar will provide governors, school leaders, headteachers, designated safeguarding leads (DSLs), teachers and all non-teaching staff with an understanding of the proposed revisions and offer advice and clarity on the key updates to safeguarding children online.
