The new Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSIE), currently in draft comes into force on 2nd September 2019. This can be found at www.gov.uk. Schools and settings Child Protection and Safeguarding policies will need updating to reflect the changes. Whilst there are no significant changes, there are some additions and minor amendments which can be found at the back of the document. The new model policy reflects those changes and includes: new references to 'upskirting' and the new criminal offence under the Voyeurism (Offences) Act 2019. The new safeguarding arrangements to be known as the Newham Safeguarding Children Partnership (NSCP) A new section covering the specific safeguarding issue of Serious Violence Inclusion of female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage under the heading of Honour Based Violence (HBV) Reference to the new RSE curriculum.

Our Attendance Management Service Statutory Service Forum take place regularly, with a programme based upon feedback from those who attend. Our forum usually focuses on one key topic each time, and consists of a mixture of workshops, question and answer sessions, and practice sharing. The aim of our forums is to provide participants with the knowledge and tools to improve their practice in one key area of attendance, as well as providing participants with the space to reflect and discuss practice with peers, practice leads and local authority colleagues. The exact programme for the day is still being put together.
