Supplementary advice published by the Department for Education relating to Keeping Children Safe in Education

10 November 2014

On 15 October 2014 the The Department for Education (DfE) published advice, as a supplement to the statutory guidance, ‘Keeping children safe in education.’The advice is entitled: ‘Keeping children safe in education: childcare disqualification requirements - supplementary advice’. We understand that the ISC has written to the DfE in connection with this advice, and it particular how it applies to independent schools.

The DfE has indicated that it will be consulting on changes to the statutory guidance ‘Keeping children safe in education’ and this will include additional information about these disqualification requirements. Following the consultation and the publication of updated statutory guidance, this supplementary advice will become part of the statutory guidance.
