The Department for Education (DfE) is consulting on proposed changes to Keeping children safe in education 2020, the statutory guidance that sets out what schools and colleges in England should do and the legal duties with which they must comply to keep children safe. The DfE is also consulting on proposed updates to advice on Sexual violence and sexual harassment between children in schools and colleges. The advice sets out what sexual violence and sexual harassment is, how to minimise the risk of it occurring and what to do when it does occur or is alleged to have occurred. The deadline for responses is 4 March 2021.
