Keeping Children Safe in Education (which is updated annually) is the framework for safeguarding which schools and other educational settings are required to work within.
Schools who do not work within this framework will fail their Ofsted or ISI inspection.

Delivery staff (teachers, mentors, support staff) are all obliged to read and understand at least Part 1 of Keeping Children Safe In Education annually, and managers need to read the entire document annually.
