Although not employment law and outside of our remit, we are sure that some of our clients would like to have the opportunity to input in to a Government Open Consultation being conducted by the Department for Education. The consultation is seeking views on revisions to Keeping Children Safe in Education, the statutory guidance that sets out what schools and colleges should do, and the legal duties with which they must comply to keep children safe.  The consultation aims to inform changes for September 2022.
