The long awaited updated versions Working Together to Safeguarding Children and Information Sharing advice for Practitioners were issues today. I will blog about the changes and actions for schools in the next few weeks.
This new guidance was issued on December 14th. It has a lot in it that schools need to consider, with particular implications for DSL training. I am working on advice and a list of possible actions for schools which I hope to have online before Christmas. In the meantime here is a link to the guidance.
On Friday 13th OFSTED issued new handbooks for 2017.
I have upload a version of both handbooks annotated to show the changes and documents listing the key changes.
I hope that these will be useful. Please let me know if I have missed anything.
