'Keeping Children Safe in Education' is updated
The statutory safeguarding guidance has been updated from 3rd September 2018.
Children with SEND are at greater risk of abuse, including peer-on-peer abuse, bullying and all other forms of abuse. Section 107 on p.27 of the updated guidance specifies some of the additional challenges that pupils with SEND face, including assumptions that possible indicators of abuse are related to the pupil's SEND without further exploring the possibility of abuse.
Many SENCOs have responsibilty for safeguarding as well as SEND, and safeguarding and SEN policies should be aligned.
The updated document emphasises the importance of safeguarding policies being personalised to an institution, including different schools within a MAT, rather than having a 'MAT-wide' policy. It also offers guidance on GDPR regulations and how and what data can be shared.
The updated guidance. Annex H on p.104 specifies the changes in this document from 2016.
