Keeping Children Safe in Education - statutory guidance for schools and colleges
This is statutory guidance from the Department for Education issued under Section 175 of the Education Act 2002, the Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations 2014 and the Education (Non-Maintained Special Schools) (England) Regulations 2011. Schools and colleges must have regard to it when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. (Please click here or on the title above for further information).
Dorset Safeguarding Children Board - information for parents, teachers and children
In 2006, the Children Act 2004 placed a requirement on the Local Authority, along with its statutory partners, to set up a Local Safeguarding Children Board.
The Dorset Safeguarding Children Board (DSCB) was therefore set up in order to make sure that key agencies work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in Dorset.
As a statutory Board, the DSCB has a strong membership of key partner agencies who all come together to ensure that we:
- protect children from maltreatment
- prevent impairment of children’s health or development
- ensure that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
- undertake that role so as to enable those children to have optimum life chances and enter adulthood successfully
- promote a safe environment free from violence.
The Dorset Safeguarding Children Board work closely with the Bournemouth and Poole Local Safeguarding Children Board in order to better safeguard children across Dorset. (Please click here or on the title above for further information).
'Parent Info' provides high quality information to parents and carers about their children's wellbeing and resilience. In line with CEOP’s Thinkuknow programme, some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.
