FREE Series of DfE Webinars On Single Central Records, Low level Concerns, Safeguarding Partners & Online Harms

This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's Education Safeguarding Professional, Jatinder Matharu, for the attention of all school staff, including Headteachers, Designated Safeguarding Leads, HR Leads, Safeguarding Governor’s and Business Managers.

The Department for Education are running a series of four 60-minute safeguarding webinars to support the statutory safeguarding guidance ‘Keeping children safe in education’ (KCSIE).

The webinars focus on four important topics: Low level concerns; single central record; safeguarding partners and sexting/online harms.

The webinars provide an opportunity for all school staff, including headteachers, designated safeguarding leads, teachers and teaching assistants, to hear from experts, who will share their knowledge and experience of these sensitive topics.

Two of the topics have already taken place. A particular good webinar is the SCR (I have attached the slide deck). You can view the pre-recorded webinar by registering here: Home | KCSIE Webinar Series (

It’s well worth forwarding this to your HR lead, Business manager or anyone else who has responsibility for maintaining the SCR.
