The Keeping Children Safe in Education 2021 guidance includes a number of updates, the most significant of which is the creation of Section Two of Part Five. This introduces the concept of low-level concerns raised about staff, supply staff, volunteers and contractors.

We know schools and trusts are still getting to grips with how to implement this new section, so in this webinar our safeguarding, HR and employment experts explain:

  • what low level concerns look like
  • how staff should report them
  • how head teachers should manage them
  • how they should be recorded
  • when they should be escalated

This on-demand webinar is suitable for senior leaders, safeguarding leads and HR and safeguarding professionals working in schools or trusts. 

As a result of watching this webinar delegates will:

  • understand how to manage low level concerns
  • know how to update staff to ensure they understand their role in reporting low level concerns
  • be clear on how to record low level concerns
  • be confident in how to investigate the concern and address with the individual
