Child Protection in Education 2016 - Manchester

Thursday 6 Oct 2016
Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel, Manchester

Why is this conference relevant?

Dai Durbridge, event chair and partner at Browne Jacobson, outlines why you should attend this event.

New safeguarding threats are emerging seemingly every day, constant changes are made to safeguarding legislation, and Ofsted are scrutinising safeguarding in even greater depth. You are right at the front line of safeguarding our children but as budgets are cut, thresholds are raised and legal obligations increase, how can you continue to offer support and protection to students in your care?

What can I expect?

  • KCS: clarify the impact of the latest ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ guidance for 2016/17.
  • Prevent: know your latest obligations, what training is required and how to deliver ‘Prevent’ in practice.
  • E-Safety: clarify your responsibility to monitor students internet use and spot early warning signs.
  • In-depth sessions: covering CSE, FGM, forced marriage and honor-based violence. 
  • Masterclasses: targeted sessions providing in-depth safeguarding guidance and legal council on goverance, special schools and independent schools.
