The Department for Education (DfE) updates the 'Keeping children safe in education: statutory guidance for schools and colleges' annually in September. This guidance sets out the legal duties which schools and colleges should comply with. It should be read alongside the statutory guidance 'Working together to safeguard children', and departmental advice 'What to do if you are worried a child is being abused: Advice for practitioners'.
