King Edward’s Witley and Barrow Hills School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. As part of that commitment, it is a requirement that all staff and governors read and understand the DfE’s Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE) guidance and the Schools’ Safeguarding policies annually and confirm they have done so.
In respect of KCSIE (September 2020), KCSIE guidance is that everyone (associated with the School) must read and understand their responsibilities detailed in Part 1. Further, that Governors must also read Part 2 as a minimum but be aware they are responsible for compliance in Parts 3, 4 and 5 and that the Designated Governor must read the whole of the guidance.
For ISI inspection purposes, your response will be kept by the Deputy Head’s Office at King Edward’s Witley and the Safeguarding Administrator at Barrow Hills School as well as the office of the Clerk to Bridewell (Governors).
